Fans of the Turtle Creek Chorale, one of the largest gay chorales in the country, can see the always-entertaining group on the big screen. The Power of Harmony opens today at the Angelika Film Center in Mockingbird Station. The film was produced by Dallas-based AMS Production Group (hey, that’s where my college boyfriend used to intern) and directed by Ginny Martin. Here’s the rest of the press release (yes, it’s too late on a Friday for me to paraphrase):
This award-winning film tells the sometimes outrageous, sometimes heart-wrenching, always riveting story of a local arts organization, the Turtle Creek Chorale. They have not only survived, but thrived, right here in the heart of the Bible Belt for over 25 years. … The Power of Harmony tells the poignant behind-the-scenes story of the spirited men who make up the Chorale. They struggle in their daily lives with the issues we read about in the newspaper every day–questions of faith and morality, inclusion and self respect, rights and responsibilities, family and friends.
This film appeals to more than a gay audience. Anyone with gay friends or family, anyone who struggles against intolerance, anyone who will is moved by an honest portrait of a human struggle for dignity and equality will be inspired by this documentary film. In addition to being a remarkable story, it’s a beautifully shot film that will be screened in high definition.
