A rare contemporary documentary that has audiences leaving the theater with a ray of hope about the state of America, The Gospel of Eureka takes place in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. With two very different types of performance happening in the town on the same night—an evangelical Christian Passion Play and a drag karaoke night—you might expect polarization and taking-of-sides. One of the great delights of the film is discovering how the town’s residents defy stereotypes, forge an unexpected sense of community, and put on one hell of a show! As Amy Taubin of Artforum noted of the film, “when the disco ball and the Star of Bethlehem are both signs of the divine...it’s hard not to respond with hope.” Narrated by Mx Justin Vivian Bond. (75 mins., DCP)
