The(ir) Blurb...

The documentary profiles the relationship of two men who enjoyed perhaps the longest term gay relationship ever recorded (65 years). They lived together through tremendous social change—who met the day WWII ended, and since then, have never parted. As an art director and film editor, they worked in film, television, and on Broadway. Their historical perspectives span pre-Stonewall to present, providing fascinating insights into how much has changed for GLBT people. After 63 years of committed life together, we are privileged to watch them obtain a marriage license and legally marry, and watch the community honor and recognize their life together. They share their insights on monogamy and commitment with disarming candor and insight. Their touching story offers a universal message that resonates with audiences and illuminates some of the many complex facets of the GLBT experience. Their edifying story is their legacy to dispel stereotypes and to help change hearts and minds, moving our nation forward towards providing equality for all its members.
