Fall From Grace – All Souls Documentary Film Series

June 12, 2007 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

The film Fall From Grace grew out of a project for a video production class. This will be a fundraiser, with all donations going to help cover Ryan’s expenses for taking the film to the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival later this month. It is a great opportunity for those who missed it the first time or would like to see it again. This documentary is about Fred Phelps, his family, and the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka. During the last fifteen years Phelps’ group has participated in over 22,000 pickets all around the world, sharing their message that the world is doomed because it has tolerated homosexuality. The filmmaker was given unprecedented access to this group, spending a year filming their activities. Also included are interviews with Topeka leaders and officials, ministers, theologians, and two of Fred Phelps’s adult children who chose to leave the church and their family. The film allows viewers to draw their own conclusions.
