Film phase: Production
This is a film that works on two levels. There is the face–to-face coming together of two politically polar opposites: Randall, anti-abortion, anti-gay activist, and the filmmaker, Katherin Linton, producer of LGBT media and firmly pro-choice. Then there’s the mutually upsetting and un-foreseen advancement of our two main issues, the rise of the religious conservative right in national politics, sweeping anti-abortion legislation, and unprecedented victories for gay rights.
