THE SIXTH OR THE EIGHTH by Andy Reynolds
*HONEGGER PRIZE WINNER FOR BEST FULL LENGTH*
Directed by Jocelyn Duford
When gay, liberal Patrick James McDonough the sixth (or the eighth) uncovers a secret about his conservative Irish father’s background, it has an echoing effect on his family for generations – both past and present. A multigenerational story told in three parts set in three different eras, The Sixth or The Eighth humorously and compassionately explores ancestry, political affiliations, gender identity, and all of the things that bring families together and ultimately drive them apart.
