Moroni for President

October 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free - £8
A brown man in light purple shirt, waistcoat, and tie with short dark hair, beard, and glasses stand with his hand in his pocket, looking up to the side. Behind him is a silver car with election posters on it, desert, and trees.

The Navajo Nation is the largest Native American reservation in the United States. Every four years, the Navajo tribe elects its president, whom is considered to be the most powerful Native American in the country. In the midst of a frenzied electoral campaign, Moroni for President follows Moroni Benally, an underdog with radical ideas who is angry about lack of social progress in the reservation he grew up in. As the election unfolds, the film delves into Moroni’s layered identity as a Mormon and gay Navajo man, along the way expanding to include LGBTQ+ characters campaigning for other candidates.

Screening as part of our strand on queerness and religion, You Gotta Have Faith.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
