Monty Python-esque Documentary JESUS MEETS THE GAY MAN on DVD & VOD 1/9
Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to the comedic, raw documentary JESUS MEETS THE GAY MAN. Breaking Glass acquired rights to the film in September in a deal negotiated between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and writer/director Jean-Claude Lafond of D.D.P. Studios Inc. The film will be released on Januray 9th on DVD and VOD through iTunes, Amazon Instant, and through local cable and satellite providers.
JESUS MEETS THE GAY MAN held its world premiere at the Whistler Pride Festival, and went on to screen at the Montreal Views of the World Film & Music Film Festival, as well as Toronto Pride. The film features an ensemble cast including Fearless Fred, Carla Collins, Paul Bellini, Scott Thompson, and many more.
"I didn't write this documentary for LGBT people, I didn't write this documentary for Christian people, I wrote this for human people", said director Jean-Claude Lafond. "This isn't a film for just one group. It's a film for everyone to enjoy."
A story of reconciliation, forgiveness and renewal wrapped in Monty Python-like sketches and a jazzy dance number, JESUS MEETS THE GAY MAN is a fun documentary that will have you see Jesus in a new light, while at the same time convincing you to work on your abs! Developed by looking at the questions of what Jesus would have said or done if He had met a gay person, the film aims to bridge the gap between Christians and the homosexual community, who have been at odds on this issue, with critical thinking and humor. In this age of so much information on THE BIBLE and on the topic of homosexuality, can the LGBTQIA and the Christians find forgiveness?
"We love to find films that are unique and completely unexpected, and Jesus Meets the Gay Man qualifies for that distinction without a doubt", said Richard Ross, Co-President of Breaking Glass. "Almost impossible to describe, the film is a documentary that is completely strange, somewhat demented, and absolutely hilarious."
