    Still from Greetings from Out Here

The Film

Tongue-in-cheek and pedal-to-the-metal, filmmaker Ellen Spiro and her dog Sam travel the backroads of the American South documenting gay life in the boonies and beyond. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignantly moving, and always intriguing, the mood of Greetings from Out Here varies as often as the scenery along the blue highways of the South — with its hubcap-decorated shacks, its embracing landscapes, its hilariously improbable place names, and most of all, its extraordinary people. Greetings from Out Here was the first ITVS production broadcast nationwide on PBS.
