1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted A Culture
Out Film CT presents 1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted A Culture, 2023 as part of the 36th Annual LGBTQ Film Festival.
What if the word ‘homosexual’ was never meant to be in the Bible? That’s the premise of this fascinating documentary that reveals an amazing surprise, discovered by a gay seminary scholar and a straight activist who delve into never-before-seen archival materials at Yale University. Modern-day homophobia within the conservative Christian church is largely the result of a mistranslation dating to 1946. Director Rocky Roggio uses her own complicated history as the queer daughter of a minister as a point of departure for this personal investigation.
