Bo McGuire on ‘Socks on Fire’

August 14, 2021

Bo McGuire, director of Socks on Fire, sat down with The Moveable Fest to talk the influence of poetry on his filmmaking, surprises that arose when digging into his family’s history, and more.

“It’s such a blessed assurance to have [Socks on Fire] out in the world and have people respond and to see the power of queer individuals in rural places,” said McGuire.

Socks on Fire screens in-person tonight at Outfest Los Angeles as the Redcat and is available to stream from August 15th-17th. On August 28th, the film will play at the Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham, Alabama.
