deepsouth. Directed by Lisa Biagiotti. USA. 2012. 72 min. English.
For the second year in a row the Boston LGBT Film Festival is teaming up with the Fenway Young Leaders Counsel to present a film that touches upon issues that affect the LGBT community.
Beneath layers of history, poverty and now soaring HIV infections, four Americans redefine traditional Southern values to create their own solutions to survive. ‘deepsouth’ is a docu-narrative about the new American South, and the people who inhabit its most quiet corners. 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 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.
