SYNOPSIS:
This beautiful film has been a massive hit with audiences on the festival circuit. That's because in these times of great division, hatred and the rise of white supremacy, it offers a glimmer of hope into the good and reminds us that despite our differences we are more connected than we think. The film follows the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus as they travel through the heartland of America, telling their stories and confronting their past and the families they left behind for a more open life in San Francisco. As a gay man who grew up in the church, I understand the pain of rejection, but filmmaker David Charles Rodrigues has made a film that is about the restorative power of art. Gay Chorus Deep South will fill your heart with joy and your mind with wonderful music.—Roger Ross Williams
