Whistlin’ Dixie: Queer Sounds, New South

DIRECTOR: Meredith Heil

In this foot-stompin’, guitar-strummin’ ride to the southland, amidst evangelical country radio and confederate flags you’ll find a new generation of queer activists. Rock, folk, bluegrass and country music all seem to waft in the humid air and it deeply informs their sense of community. In Kentucky, North Carolina and Georgia, Whistlin’ Dixie investigates the complex relationship between music, identity politics and resistance through intimate interviews and riveting performances—including a Butchies reunion show in Athens, Georgia and with insightful words from Amy Ray of Indigo Girls.
