A new poster and trailer have been released for the documentary Gay Chorus Deep South, premiering at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Directed by David Charles Rodrigues, the film follows The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus as they go on tour throughout the South, confronting prejudice and challenging intolerance.
Gay Chorus Deep South will be premiering at Tribeca on April 29th and will be followed by a performance by the chorus. For ticketing and more information, head over to TribecaFilm.com.
Led by Gay Chorus Conductor Dr. Tim Seelig and joined by The Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir; the tour brings a message of music, love and acceptance to communities and individuals confronting intolerance. Over 300 singers travelled from Mississippi to Tennessee through the Carolinas and over the bridge in Selma. They performed in churches, community centers and concert halls in hopes of uniting us in a time of difference. The journey also challenges Tim and other Chorus members who fled the South to confront their own fears, pain and prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation. The conversations and connections that emerge offer a glimpse of a less divided America, where the things that divide us—faith, politics, sexual identity—are set aside by the soaring power of music, humanity and a little drag.
