If you are familiar with Director Del Shores’ 2000 cult classic “Sordid Lives,” then you know that he uses humor to make important points about love and acceptance. The 2000 film depicted the difficulty of coming out in a small Texas town. In the 2017 sequel, “A Very Sordid Wedding,” marriage equality becomes an issue in the same small town 17 years later.
The October 6 screening to benefit Positively Living is the ONLY screening in Knoxville. SPECIAL GUESTS: Director Del Shores, Knoxville native Dale Dickey & Oliver Springs resident Levi Kreiss who star in the film, & Producer Emerson Collins who also plays a role in the film.
