Join Women's & Gender Studies for a screening of 'deepsouth' along with the Director of the film, Lisa Biagiotti and Subject Kathie Hiers.
"'deepsouth' is a documentary about the rural 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.
'deepsouth' won the SHOUT! LGBT Best Documentary Feature Award at the Sidewalk Film Festival and the Best Domestic Documentary and Audience Favorite Award at the Outflix Film Festival."
Lisa and Kathie will provide a short question and answer session following the film and then will join us for a reception over by the donor area, WCC 171.
