Director Statement

Out Of Love was made for my MA in Documentary Practice at the University of Brunel. Having experienced the prejudicial attitudes of the church when I was a teenager I wanted to see if things had changed. The film comprises of interviews with three young openly gay Christians. The visual element of the film focuses on the subjective experiences of these young women, using a mix of personal recollections and sensual imagery to convey the experiences of reconciling their sexuality with their faith.

The church remains one of the few institutions in the United Kingdom where homophobic attitudes are part of the mainstream. Young people today live in a society where being gay is more acceptable then ever before. But is this the same for young, gay Christians? Out Of Love weaves together subjective, intimate and personal recollections of being young, gay and Christian.
