First Run Thumps "For the Bible Tells Me So" for North America

First Run Features has acquired North American rights to Daniel Karslake‘s Sundance ’07 doc “For the Bible Tells Me So,” the company’s Vice President Marc Mauceri announced Tuesday. The film will roll out theatrically beginning in October. Cinetic Media represented the filmmakers in the sale. The doc reconciles homosexuality with the traditional reading of scripture through the personal stories of such figures as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson and the Gephardt family. “We are so proud to be bringing ‘For the Bible Tells Me So’ to North American audiences,” said Mauceri in a statement. “Not only is it an important film which offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity, but it is also a terrifically entertaining film, one that audiences have responded to with great enthusiasm.” [Brian Brooks]
