April Film Screening #1:  A Very Sordid Wedding


aGLIFF presents: A Very Sordid Wedding (Austin Premiere)


Wednesday, April 19 at 7:00pm [SOLD OUT] and 7:30pm at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar


Writer/Director Del Shores & Producer Emerson Collins will be present at screening


This screening sponsored by:



It's 2015, seventeen years after family matriarch Peggy tripped over G.W.’s wooden legs in Sordid Lives, and life has moved into the present for the residents of Winters, Texas. In the wake of the Supreme Court decision in favor of marriage equality, the Sordid saga continues.  An anniversary memorial service is being planned in honor of Peggy at the bar while the Southside Baptist Church is planning an "Anti-Equality Rally" to protest the advancement of same-sex marriage.  Both events are to take place on the same night, so the beloved cast of colorful characters are all on a collision course for shenanigans and fireworks at the church and everyone’s favorite bar on the big night.  Along the way a bisexual serial killer shows up, a drag queen country medley gets performed and a beauty salon versus the bigots battle turns getting your hair done into the front lines of the equality battle.  Friendships are tested and families are reunited as fear and bigotry are confronted with acceptance and understanding on the way to a surprise wedding with (almost) everyone in attendance. Starring: Bonnie Bedelia, Leslie Jordan, Caroline Rhea, Dale Dickey, Emerson Collins & Whoopi Goldberg.

April Film Screening #2:  Below Her Mouth

aGLIFF30 Upcoming Events



aGLIFF presents: Below Her Mouth (Texas Premiere)


Wednesday, April 26 at 7:00pm at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar


 Skype Q & A with director April Mullen, following the screening.



One of the boldest and sexiest dramas of the year, April Mullen's "Below Her Mouth" tells the story of an unexpected romance between two women whose passionate connection changes their lives forever. Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé, Rile (Sebastian Pigott). On a night out in the city with her best friend, she meets Dallas (Erika Linder), a roofer recently out of a relationship. Jasmine is taken by surprise when Dallas confidently hits on her; she turns Dallas down, but can't get her out of her head. Dallas continues her cool, self-assured advances. In a matter of days, Jasmine succumbs and the two women embark on a steamy affair. It feels like a fantasy world compared to Jasmine's life and plans with Rile, but soon reality rears its head, and she will have to face the profound changes their sudden romance has wrought in her. Stephanie Fabrizi's screenplay powerfully and honestly explores what happens when two women fall hard for each other, and Mullen brings the story to the screen with uninhibited flair and assurance, showing us how love can arise from some of the messiest times in our lives.

"Below Her Mouth" is a rarity in more than one way: it's a fiction film shot with an entirely female crew, and it's an uncommonly frank look at the all-encompassing nature of attraction — the good, the bad, the ugly, and the transcendendent.

Dir. April Mullen, Canada, 2016, 92 min, DCP
