Director Hillevi Loven, and LGBTQ supporter Susan Sarandon’s Deep Run, is a powerful verité portrait of trans life in rural North Carolina. Exiled by her family and rejected by an ex, 17-year-old Spazz has no one to lean on for support. But when Spazz falls in love again and summons up the courage to become Cole, a strong-willed trans man, his candid humor and steadfast, all-inclusive Christian beliefs counter the bigotry he experiences daily. This exquisite documentary reveals rebirth and courage within America’s deeply conservative Bible Belt.
