deepsouth

July 27, 2014

Beneath layers of history, poverty and now soaring HIV infections, four Americans redefine traditional Southern values to create their own solutions to survive. Followed by Skype Q&A with director Lisa Biagiotti. A program of The Angels Project, presented by Intiman Theatre.

deepsouth is a documentary about the rural 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 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.

Each of these stories shares a particular perspective on life with HIV in a region of the United States often ignored by politicians and the public – a point of view that turns out to be both educational and inspirational.

About The Angels Project

The festival culminates in late summer with the Intiman Theatre production of "Angels in America", August 12 – September 21, at Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center (formerly Intiman Playhouse).
