Sunday, July 20, 2008, 6:00 pm, $7

Recipient of the Frameline 30 Audience Award for Best Documentary and of a 2005 Frameline Film & Video Completion Fund grant, The Believers is an unprecedented feature documentary that shatters assumptions about faith, gender, and religion. Built around the world’s first transgender gospel choir, the film portrays the choir’s dilemma – how to reconcile their gender identity with the widespread belief that changing one’s gender goes against the word of God. The Believers is a unique story of determination and perseverance and an important look at the intricacy and diversity of spirituality and the LGBT community.Directed by Todd Holland, 2006.
