So what have you been up to for the past few years of your life? Did you happen to make a massively important documentary that explores the controversy over what the Bible has to say about homosexuality being a sin? NO? Well Chicago filmmaker Ky Dickens did.
For the past few years, Ky and Producer/PR lady Kristen Kaza traveled from city to small town, to armpit of the world in order to interview common folk and religious leaders from both the team gay and team ‘you’re going to hell’ spectrum of this long running debate. The result of their filming and research is a documentary called Fish Out of Water.
Fish out of Water combines interviews with queers from various cities with information heard directly from the sources of religious leaders who dispel the age-old myth that only angels, not fairies, can truly earn their wings.
If you should happen to live in or around the Chicago area, you can catch the Windy City premiere of Fish Out of Water at the Music Box Theater this Sunday (11/8) where it’s being shown as part of the Reeling Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Added bonus to the film = an original score by Kaki King, and animation sequences that break down the heavy bits, provided by Chicago illustrator Kyle Harter. Oh, and I’m totally in this movie. Just sayin’.
