We are delighted to welcome US based director, photographer, and musician Donal Mosher to Glasgow for a filmmaking workshop hosted by SQIFF and Scottish Documentary Institute.
Donal Mosher is the collaborative director with Michael Palmieri on the award wining documentary features October Country, Off Label, and The Gospel Of Eureka, as well as the shorts Rougarouing, Marseilles, and Peace in the Valley. He has published fiction, non-fiction, and reviews for The Fanzine, Talkhouse, and the LAMBDA award winning Portland Queer Anthology. His photo project The Vibrancy Is Killing Me opened in Munich, Germany in 2015 and became the basis for Strange Gardens , an ongoing live cinema series that has been performed at the Risk/Reward Festival, and toured the US with Pop Up magazine.
The Gospel of Eureka
Evangelical Christians and drag queens collide in the Arkansas town of Eureka Springs, home to both a massive amphitheatre performing the Passion Play every year and a local gay bar with a tradition of gospel-inspired drag. Despite chasms in political and religious viewpoints, the townspeople are universally charming and warm, even whilst battling over a historic vote on an anti-discrimination ordinance. A personal and often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership. Narrated by Mx Justin Vivian Bond. In partnership with Document Human Rights Film Festival.
This masterclass is free but spaces are limited. Sign up below to guarantee a ticket.
