MOVIE HOUSE AND BELFAST FILM FESTIVAL TEAM UP WITH BELFAST PRIDE

Movie House, Dublin Road will host two Belfast Film Festival screenings as part of this year’s Belfast Pride including the UK premiere of an intimate documentary revealing rebirth and courage within America’s deeply conservative Bible Belt.

Executive produced by LGBTQ supporter Susan Sarandon and shot by filmmaker Hillevi Loven, Deep Run (Wednesday 3rd August) is a powerful verité portrait of trans life in rural North Carolina.

Exiled by her family and rejected by an ex, 17-year-old Spazz has no one to lean on for support. But when Spazz falls in love again and summons up the courage to become Cole, a strong-willed trans man, his candid humor and steadfast, all-inclusive Christian beliefs counter the bigotry he experiences daily. Deep Run is a powerful portrait of contemporary trans life.

In Summertime (Thursday 4th August), revolution is in the air in early 1970s France and two women’s blossoming relationship faces challenges beyond their control.

Country girl Delphine encounters metropolitan Carole during a feminist protest in Paris. The spark of attraction between them is undeniable. They embark on a passionate, all-consuming love affair until everything comes to a dramatic halt when Delphine is recalled back to her parent’s farm in the aftermath of her father’s stroke.

From vibrant scenes of civil unrest on the streets of Paris, to the lushly photographed rural landscape that make up the latter section of the film, Catherine Corsini has crafted a beautiful and sensual film about two women in love.
