LOVE FREE OR DIE (Special Jury Prize winner Sundance 2012) is about a man whose two defining passions the world cannot reconcile: his love for God and for his partner Mark. It is about church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity-and one man s struggle to dispel the notion that God s love has limits. In the film, Gene Robinson becomes the first openly gay person to be elected bishop in the high church traditions of Christendom. Bishop Robinson s elevation in the sleepy New Hampshire diocese in 2003 ignited a worldwide firestorm in the Anglican Communion, one that has become so heated that there is still a chance of a schism in the 80 million-member denomination. One year after being muzzled by the Archbishop of Canterbury, he finds himself speaking from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at Barack Obama s Inauguration. Gene Robinson confronts those who use religion as an instrument of oppression, and claims a place in the church and society, not just for LGBT people, but for all.

Heart-wrenching film You don’t have to be Episcopalian or even religious to be touched and moved by this story. This film tells the saga of The Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson in a very personal and emotional way. Gene Robinson is not a saint, but the bigotry and hate he endured just because he was in a position of power and gay is very disturbing, and yet it is also very inspiring. There are several scenes that individuals (a parishioner in a church in England) and groups (Diocese of Ft. Worth, TX) do their best to break…
