The Gospel of Eureka
First screened in November 2019
Directors: Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher. Documentary about a small Arkansas community where Christian pageantry and queer culture coexist in relative equanimity.

Twitter Capsule: Precise tonal balance between sincerity and camp crucial to its communal portrait. Inspired images and edits.

VOR:   Much of its value is sociological: U.S. media rarely convey the paradoxes of towns like this. Some of the film's language is distinctive, too.
