Gay Chorus Deep South
DIRECTOR: DAVID CHARLES RODRIGUES
Responding to an uptick in anti-LBGTQ laws in several Southern states, the famous San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus sets off on a goodwill tour of the Deep South. Director David Charles Rodrigues’s one-of-a-kind tour film follows conductor Tim Seelig—one of several southern-born members—the chorus, and the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir on their journey, challenging stereotypes while revealing a “Red State” America that’s not nearly so close-minded or monolithic as is often depicted. The film is a voyage of reconciliation and a celebration of more than one kind of harmony. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Audience Award at Berkshire International Film Festival, and the Top 5 Audience Award at Traverse City Film Festival.
