ALABAMA BOUND
Dirs: Lara Embry and Carolyn Sherer, USA, 2017, 83 mins


Winner! Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary, NewFest 2017

Exploring the legal roller-coaster ride of LGBTQ rights in the American South, this award-winning documentary offers an expansive and intimate view into the lives of three same-sex families in Alabama--including the only openly-gay Alabama State Legislator Patricia Todd--as they make waves in the legal system fighting homophobic legislation in a deeply religious state. Set alongside the turning-point years when federal marriage equality was coming to a head in the courts, this riveting and powerful film tactfully imbues the viewer with hope and frustration as Patricia Todd leads the charge in next wave of the LGBTQ fight for equality: legal non-discrimination.

With Alabama state politics in national press with the defeat of anti-LGBTQ Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is featured prominently as the bible-thumping Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice, ALABAMA BOUND couldn't be more timely and urgent.

In person for post-screening talkback and reception: subjects Cari Searcy and Kim McKeand to follow
