Deep Run

This deeply personal documentary reveals rebirth and courage within America’s deeply conservative Bible Belt as Cole, a transgender man, struggles to find a church that will affirm his identity and support his relationship with his girlfriend, Ashley. With a small group of supportive friends, relatives, and Ashley, Cole’s search for love and belonging leads him to a radical revision of what faith and church can be. An intimate study of young outsiders in an insular Christian community, Deep Run explores the intersection of modern identity and faith in the American South.

The 2017 Created Equal Film Series is presented by the Bon Secours Health Foundation.
