Film: GAY CHORUS DEEP SOUTH – Audience Award Winner at Tribeca!
To confront a resurgence of faith-based anti-LGBTQ laws, Conductor Tim Seelig leads 300 singers from the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus on a bus tour of the deep south, showcasing fine music, confronting political and religious intolerance and challenging his own troubled past with the church. Joined by the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, these intrepid singers bring a message of music, love, and acceptance to communities that are often on the front lines against intolerance. The road trip forces Seelig, and a handful of other Chorus members who fled the south, to confront their own fears, pain, and prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation. In a time of great divide in this country, director David Charles reveals a timely, relevant, and musical exploration of LGBT issues that both challenges and reinforces notions surrounding the South. Gay Chorus Deep South has won many awards, including the Audience Award at the prestigious 2019 Tribeca Film Festival!
