Shots from Liberty's Secret that ended up on the cutting room floor -- which was probably covered with newspaper.Read More
Stateside, a news and culture show on Michigan Public Radio, did a nice feature on Liberty's Secret today. Host Cynthia Canty interviewed Liberty's Secret director Andy Kirshner about the upcoming premiere at the Michigan Theater, and played several audio clips from the movie. Here's a link to the full story/interview:
Almost eight years in the making, our good old-fashioned lesbian movie-musical will premiere on Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Michigan Theater, Ann Arbor, MI at 8PM, for one night only! Info on tickets and reservations will be coming soon, so please stay tuned to this page for more specifics. For those of you who are not in Ann Arbor or environs, (yes, I am talking to you, dear Australian, Indonesian, and other International fans), we are currently working out a way for you to screen the film publicly or privately in your own communities, shortly after the Sept. 22 premiere here. More details coming soon on how you can screen Liberty's Secret right where you live.
Here's a clip from one of my favorite scenes, a revival meeting in Liberty's hometown church. A song and dance for saints and sinners alike. Hilarious performances by Caroline Helton (church lady), Ellie Todd (stripper), and Chris Lutkin (reverend).
After 21 days of shooting, Liberty's Secret has finished principle photography. The shoot was a lot of fun, and the footage looks great. Now I head into the editing room to begin putting it all together.
