Part of Film series BAMcinemaFest 2018
Directed by Michael Palmieri, Donal Mosher | 2018

Co-presented with Rooftop Films

Welcome to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a one-of-a-kind oasis in the Ozarks where Christian piety rubs shoulders with a thriving queer community. Narrated with homespun humor by Mx Justin Vivian Bond, this lushly photographed documentary spotlights the space where the town’s seemingly contradictory factions intersect: Lee and Walter, out and proud husband-owners of a local gay bar they liken to a “hillbilly Studio 54,” talk about their deep-seated faith; a Christian t-shirt designer describes his love for his gay father; and everything comes together in a show-stopping mash-up of a spectacular passion play and raucous drag show. The result is a joyously offbeat slice of Americana that breaks down the red-state-blue-state divide.

Q&A with Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher, and film subjects Walter Burrell, Jayme Brandt, and Ginger Styles
