Because I’m Here, a documentary work in progress
September 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
For decades, Earl Gilmore—a flamboyant, African American, self-taught musician—was the most interesting person in the tiny coal town of Clinchco, Virginia. Just ask any of the generations of children who came to his house to learn about Black history, music, dancing, dress up and just having fun. But underneath the surface there was so much more. A filmmaker returns to rural Virginia to finish the film he started 35 years ago about the queer, devoutly Christian man who became his friend, and discovers more than he expected.
