More About The Film: When the beloved matriarch of a sprawling Southern clan passes away, her children show their true colors. A once close-knit family is torn apart as the filmmaker’s homophobic aunt attempts to cast aside her gay, drag-queen brother. In his debut feature, Bo McGuire details, deconstructs, and celebrates the colorful individuals in his Southern clan. With imagination, style, and panache, this film is a surprising and deeply moving family portrait. (SFFILM Festival)
