On the heels of the historic reelection of President Barack Obama and marriage equality advancing in four more states, director Charlie Gage is proud to announce the DVD release of INSPIRED: The Voices Against Prop 8. The film will be available on DVD December 4th (SRP $24.99) from Garden Thieves Pictures. Check out the official trailer below!

INSPIRED: The Voices Against Prop 8 is a documentary film chronicling several people's lives in the wake of the passage of Proposition 8 in 2008. Arresting live footage follows average people from all walks of life, inspired to action in ways they never dreamed. Experience the passionate rallies and defiant marches of the new gay rights movement as it swept through Southern California. Intimate interviews reveal all the ways the movement comes together, and the subtle and not-so-subtle ways it can be pulled apart from within.

Inspired goes behind the headlines and propaganda to explore the real people who make up a movement. The film is an examination of people who were inspired to stand up for gay rights and civil rights when that infamous proposition passed. Twenty-seven people from teenagers to professional adults, from a lawyer to a prison guard to a reverend are interviewed about how their lives changed on November 4, 2008.

In a time when marriage equality is struggling to win over the hearts and minds of mainstream America, this film serves as a powerful tool to go beyond the sound bites.

Inspired introduces the audience to the real people behind the movement, and lets them speak firsthand about their hopes and wishes. In addition to the men, women and families impacted by Prop 8, the film also captures the opinions of equality advocates such as Lady Gaga, Drew Barrymore, Darryl Stephens ("DTLA"), Cleve Jones (AIDS Memorial Quilt), Matt Lucas (Bridesmaids), LA Councilman Bill Rosendahl, LA Mayor
Antonio Villaraigosa and Cynthia Nixon ("Sex and the City").

Preorder on Amazon

The DVD will arrive complete with deleted scenes and the features "Still Inspired" and "Inspired in Mexico City". For more information on Inspired: The Voices Against Prop 8 including requests for screeners, interviews, press photos and final DVD copies, please respond to this email.
