excerpt

 

Colorist Ashley Ayarza collaborated with director Dan Taberski on These C*cksucking Tears, a short documentary that explores the life and career of Pat Haggerty, a country singer who wrote and performed the first gay-themed country album in 1973. Taberski worked with Ayarza to add a “grit and nicotine stain” to the footage of Haggerty going through his day-to-day, while bringing out lavender colors in the performance footage, appropriate to Haggerty’s band name of “Lavender Country.” The film was honored with the Documentary Shorts Jury Award at SXSW.
