THE GOSPEL OF EUREKA

New Releases

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Love, faith and civil rights collide in a southern town as evangelical Christians and drag queens step into the spotlight to dismantle stereotypes. This documentary takes a personal, and often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership. Gospel drag shows and passion plays set the stage for one hell of a show.

Reviews

“This cheerful small town portrait makes for an idealistic crowd-pleaser — after all, Eureka Springs is the rumored home of healing waters.” – Amy Nicholson, Variety

“The movie’s vision of varieties of religious experience and celebrations of identity is matched by its fervent embrace of community in the shift from hatred to acceptance.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“One of the more fascinating examinations of American religion and the meaning of faith in recent cinema.” – Nathanael Hood, Unseen Films
