Reel Q Presents
A Worm in the Heart
Monday, December 14th
Join us for the regional premiere and unreleased screening of A Worm in the Heart hosted by ReelQ. This program includes an exclusive live interview with director Paul Rice and executive producer Liam Jackson Montgomery.
A Worm in the Heart details the extraordinary lives and brave stories of the diverse LGBTQ+ communities across Russia. Shot in six cities along the Trans-Siberian railway and utilizing intimate interviews about current Russian life, this documentary features deeply personal and moving accounts from activists and non-activists alike. The film follows queer Irish filmmaker Paul Rice and his boyfriend Liam, as they go undercover, armed only with two cameras, to meet with the many heroic members of the LGBTQ+ community who risk their lives living authentically under oppressive laws and prejudices—from Nobel Peace prize nominees and international activists, to drag queen performers thriving in remote Siberia.
