⚬ Human Interest ⚬ Queer 


This Berlinale Panorama Audience Award winner provides a sensitive, humorous and charming record of a forty-something, HIV positive gay man, as he sets off to confront his estranged parents with their disagreements and fears. Acclaimed Heymann brothers crafted a highly accessible meta-documentary about the power home has, no matter how far we go.
