Available April 9 from Kino Lorber, “Gospel of Eureka” Examines Gay Life in Arkansas

Kino Lorber has announced the release of Gospel of Eureka (DVD: $29.95), coming April 9. Narrated with homespun humor by Mx Justin Vivian Bond, filmmakers Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher’s lushly photographed documentary shines a spotlight on the town of Eureka Springs, AR, where seemingly contradictory factions intersect: Lee and Walter, out and proud husband-owners of a local gay bar they liken to a “hillbilly Studio 54,” talk about their deep-seated faith; a Christian T-shirt designer describes his love for his gay father; and everything comes together in a show-stopping mash-up of a spectacular passion play and raucous drag show.
