The Freethought Film Festival Foundation will be hosting the Florida premiere screening of "Contradiction" on Sunday, January 19th, 2014 in downtown Orlando, Florida. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director, Jeremiah Camara, author of "Holy Lockdown: Does the Church Limit Black Progress?", and "The New Doubting Thomas: The Bible, Black Folks & Blind Belief". There will be a book signing following the program. In addition, there will be an introduction with comic, Steve Hill, and a post-screening panel discussion, co-hosted by the Black Non-Believers of Metro Orlando, and the local Freedom from Religion Foundation chapter, Central Florida Freethought Community, will take place in the theater. (Panelists TBA)
"In Contradiction, Jeremiah Camara travels across the country examining religious obsession and the impact of faith amongst African Americans. Contradiction explores the paradox of an abundance of churches coupled with the great number of societal ailments in Black communities and seeks to find if there is a correlation between high praise and low productivity. Camara talks to the faithful and the faithless to determine the empirical benefits of prayer, worship and religious loyalty."
Tickets are $10 in advance. ($15 at the door)
