Start Pride Month with WATCH DOCS
June, is the month when parades, events, concerts and picnics are held all over the world expressing support and recognition for the long-standing work of the LGBTQ+ community. It is a great celebration of freedom, equality, dance and rainbow energy. That is why we invite you to two rainbow events on 2 June - a screening of the film 'The Gospel of Eureka' at Kinoteka Cinema and the Rainbow Silent Psisko at Kulturalna!
2 June (Friday)
Eureka, Arkansas - population: 2000; Passion Plays and Christian drag shows
With barely 2,000 inhabitants, Eureka Springs, Arkansas, can boast of healing waters, a great statue of Christ, spectacular Passion Plays and Christian drag shows. And residents will soon vote on a law that is certainly not born of the spirit of tolerance. One would therefore expect Palmieri and Mosher to base their film on contrasts. Nothing could be further from the truth: the audiences on both sides are difficult to distinguish from one another, and hostile polarization appears to be part of the distant world of great politics, which according to scripture was mixed with religion by Judas, not Jesus, as the owner of a store selling religious items notes in the film. This spectacular, humorous and empathetic film about love, faith and human rights convinces us that the soul of America has not yet been lost.
