Gender identity and religion are bifrontal fights for Ulysses, a 14 year-old-boy, who uses fantasy to find what his perfect future could be. Directed and written by Damon Cardasis, ‘Saturday Church‘ is already earmarking itself to be the film to see for LGBT audiences in 2018.
If you’re still wondering if the film will be hot or not, Variety says you don’t have to choose:
Were you Team “Moonlight” or Team “La La Land”? Now you don’t have to choose. As vibrant as it is vital, Manhattan-made indie “Saturday Church” tells the all-too-common coming-out story of a young black gay man … as a musical, blending elements of those rival best picture nominees into a winning new combination.
Press play below and prepare for January 12, 2018.
