Abramorama has acquired the worldwide rights to “American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel.”
Directed by Catherine Butler, the film profiles a group of defiant ministers, congregations, and community leaders in Oklahoma who are challenging deeply rooted fundamentalist Christian doctrine in favor of a gospel of inclusion.
Labeled as “heretics” for their beliefs and actions, they’re challenging fundamentalist Christian interpretations of the Bible that continue to justify nationalism and attack landmark civil rights protections for women, minorities, immigrants, and LGBTQ communities.
“American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel” will begin its theatrical release on July 12 in New York City, followed by engagements in select cities across the country.
