Special Film Presentation


Thursday, May 16th

Carolina Theater, Downtown Hickory

7:00pm  •  $5.00 for all tickets

On Thursday, May 16th, the new documentary FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO will be screening at the Carolina Theater in Downtown Hickory at 7:00pm.

The documentary is filmmaker Daniel Karslake's follow-up to FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO which was shown in Hickory in February.

The film is described as "a powerful exploration of the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in America.  Heartfelt but painful, devastating yet hopeful, the film examines what it really means to be 'family'."

The film has shown at the Tribecca Film Festival, the Montclair Film Festival, and the QDocs Film Festival in Portland, OR.  The Hickory screening would be the fourth public screening of the film.

The director/producerDaniel Karslake, will be in attendance for the screening on May 16th and will take part in a question-and-answer session immediately following the film.

Tickets for the event are $5.00 at the theater the night of the screening.  As this is not an official film society membership event, the event is open to the public and all attendees would require a paid ticket.

Ticket proceeds from the evening will be donated to OUTright Youth of Catawba Valley, an organization that provides a unique, youth-centered, safe environment for LGBTQ youth and their allies.  Learn more about this organization at www.outrightyouthcv.com.

Please help us in thanking Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams for supporting this special film screening and joining us for the discussion afterwards!


Footcandle Film Society was founded in 2008 and has provided the citizens of Catawba County with an opportunity to view and discuss films that have traditionally not been available or shown in theaters in the area. The film society has shown at least one film per month since its inception, with the films ranging from documentaries, foreign narratives, and award-nominated movies of all genres.  The screenings all include moderated discussions of the films.
