"Lot in Sodom" (1933) is a short silent experimental film, based on the Biblical tale of the city of Sodom and Gomorrah. It was directed by James Sibley Watson and Melville Webber. The movie uses experimental techniques, Avant-Garde imagery and strong allusions to sexuality, especially homosexuality.


The story is much closer to the tale than other films like "Sodom and Gomorrah".

Sodom is a place of sin. An angel appears there and he is welcomed by Lot. The people of Sodom want to have sex with him. Lot refuses; then the angel tells him to escape the city with his wife and daughter. Sodom is then destroyed by the flames; Lot's wife is turned to a pillar of salt for having looked back.

All intertitles are quotes from the Bible.
