Movie: Fish Out Of Water

A documentary that explores the impassioned relationship between homosexuality and the bible.

The feature documentary begins with an animated recollection of the fallout at Vanderbilt University when the films director, Ky Dickens, came out to her sorority sisters. Their rabid rejection sparks her search for Bible-based condemnation.

Crisscrossing America and listening to the country's impassioned speech on this divisive issue, she speaks with ministers of all denominations, recording the experiences of the oppressed and the justifications of the oppressors.

At the film's core are interviews with GLBTQ folks from every religion, class and ethnic group who have survived intolerance, most often from their own families. Their searing but soul-soaring stories give the fight for equality a human voice and face, offering inspiration to those still ensnared in struggle.
