From director Lisa Biagiotti, comes a feature documentary titled deepsouth.
Here’s how it’s described:
deepsouth is a documentary about the new American South, and the people who inhabit its most quiet corners. Beneath layers of history, poverty and now soaring HIV infections, four Americans redefine traditional Southern values to create their own solutions to survive. Josh, a college student, seeks the support of an underground gay family miles away from his suffocating Mississippi Delta hometown. With no funds and few resources, Monica and Tammy try tirelessly to unite reluctant participants at their annual HIV retreat in rural Louisiana. Kathie, an Alabama activist, spends 120 days a year on the road fighting a bureaucracy that continues to ignore the South.
The film won the SHOUT! LGBT Best Documentary Feature Award at the Sidewalk Film Festival and the Best Domestic Documentary and Audience Favorite Awards at the Outflix Film Festival.
It continues to tour the festival, lecture, and screening series circuit, and will next screen today, Thursday, December 6, at 5:15 pm in Baltimore, Maryland, at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Sheldon Hall — 615 North Wolfe Street.
