Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival Award Winners Include 2 Made in Arkansas Docs
The 27th Annual Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival wrapped on Saturday, October 27 with the awards ceremony and the Closing Night Film “Daughter of the Sexual Revolution: The Untold Story of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders”.
Among the award winners were two documentaries Made in Arkansas.
“Cotton Plant,” directed by Matthew Michaud, took home the REEL SOUTH BEST SHORT DOCUMENTARY AWARD.
"Cotton Plant" is a short documentary about a deeply religious mayor who looks to the medical marijuana industry as the last hope for his dying Southern town.
“The Gospel of Eureka,” directed by Donal Mosher & Michael Palmieri, took home the BEST SOUTHERN DOCUMENTARY AWARD.
Love, faith and civil rights collide in a southern town as evangelical Christians and drag queens step into the spotlight to dismantle stereotypes.
The film 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.
Narrated by Mx Justin Vivian Bond.
