‘GAY CHORUS DEEP SOUTH’ FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCER SHEILA NEVINS & MTV DOCUMENTARY FILMS
AWARDS CONTENDER – WINNER OF THE AUDIENCE AWARD FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY AT TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL AND 16 OTHER AWARDS FROM FESTIVALS AROUND THE WORLD
In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBT laws and the divisive 2016 election, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus embarks on a tour of the American Deep South.
Led by conductor Dr. Tim Seelig and joined by The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir; the award-winning Gay Chorus Deep South is the timely story of 300 brave singers who traveled from Mississippi to Tennessee through the Carolinas bringing a message of love and acceptance to those fighting intolerance. The ensuing conversations and connections offer a glimpse of a less polarized America, where the issues that divide us — faith, politics, sexual identity — are set aside by the soaring power of music, humanity and a little drag.
Opens in New York – Friday, November 1
