Liberty Hall is pleased to announce the premier of acclaimed Slamdance documentary, “Little Hope Was Arson” on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 2 and 4 p.m.
Acquiring the film for all rights in the U.S. and Canada, The Orchard is releasing “Little Hope Was Arson” theatrically in several markets including New York, Los Angeles and Tyler, Texas, as well as across all major digital outlets.
This film debut by Theo Love takes place in January 2010 in the buckle of the Bible Belt. Over a period of several weeks, ten churches burn to the ground leaving the community angry and suspicious. These malicious acts of arson ignite the largest criminal investigation in East Texas history.
As the story unfolds and the arsonist is apprehended, the community is shocked to find that evil was one of their own. The subject of forgiveness and quest for justice rips at the hearts of citizens.“Little Hope Was Arson” was acclaimed at the Slamdance Film Festival 2014 in January.
“After seeing sold-out festival crowds respond to our film, I am excited to partner with Independent Lens and The Orchard to bring this film to an even bigger audience,” stated director Theo Love. “As a first time filmmaker, I am honored to have the support of these prestigious companies who share our love for this story. At a time when most films about faith divide, this is a film that will bring people together.”
Tickets are available online for $10 at or at the door, one hour prior to the show, for $10. Veteran and student tickets are available for $8.
