Title: Fish Out of Water Trailer
Description: “Fish Out of Water” is a smart, fresh, personal discussion of the seven Bible verses traditionally exploited to condemn homosexuality.
The feature documentary begins with an animated recollection of the fallout at Vanderbilt University when the film’s 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.
Golden Globe nominee Kaki King has created an original score for this genre-bending work. King’s varied mix of keys, strings and rhythm flows effortless from quirky interviews in barbershops and truck stops, to concept-shattering scholarship by leading theologians of today.
By using original animation as its tool for exploring the Bible, “Fish out of Water” makes this controversial and dusty topic accessible to those who don't like talking about religion and sexuality.
“Fish out of Water,” which takes the subject but not itself too seriously, explodes the conventional arguments of hate. Those who previously contorted the Bible to deny human rights now must face the truth of their own hatred and of God’s unqualified love.
