BINGO! The Documentary

Filmmaker John Jeffcoat takes an unanticipated, and often endearing look at all that is Bingo- from welfare recipients to drag queens and the Catholic Church in all it's gaudy, bawdy, and grandly humorous, best.

Filmed on location throughout the United States, Europe, and even on a floating Cruise Bingo Ship in the Caribbean, the film reveals all that lies below the gloss of American kitsch: an unexpected subculture of eccentric and tightly-knit people for whom hope truly springs eternal.

Jeffcoat explores the surprising boom that is Bingo! as well as the problems facing an aging population: gambling, loneliness, and the art of lady luck.
