Limited Capacity seats available

Director Mark Thiedeman joins us for a conversation about making LGBT movies in the South.

UCA Professor Bruce Hutchinson moderates the discussion as the audience watches clips of Thiedeman's work over the last several years. Including the full 40 min award winning short film SACRED HEARTS, HOLY SOULS, the story of "two teenage misfits at an all-boys Catholic boarding school who become unlikely comrades in their struggles against a hormonal bully and an old- fashioned priest."

At the 2014 Little Rock Film Festival the film won the Charles B. Pierce Best Film Made in Arkansas and was nominated for Best Director and Best Actor (Quinn Gassaway).

"Mark Thiedeman's beautiful coming-of-age story is one of the year's best" - Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

"Thiedeman’s writing is quick, fresh, funny, real and sometimes surprising, so it never feels like a story you already know." - Stephanie Maxwell, Sync Magazine

Sacred Hearts, Holy Souls is currently being developed into a feature film with production scheduled to begin in Winter 2016.
