Religion Film Series: Fish Out of Water

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Religion and Cultural Studies Program will be cohosting a film series with the UCF Library, to explore Religion and Sexuality through the film medium. 

The last film of the series is Fish Out of Water:

Inspired by the experience of coming out as a lesbian to her sorority sisters during her senior year at Vanderbilt, filmmaker Ky Dickens explores the Biblical passages used to condemn homosexuality in this informative yet entertaining documentary. Interweaving whimsical animation with enlightening interviews from both within the lesbian and gay community and as well with theologians from across the country, Fish Out of Water breaks down seven key passages from the Old and New Testaments - from Adam and Eve to Sodom and Gomorrah and the Purity Codes - while confronting the debate over translation and historical context that affect today's interpretations of the Bible.
