12-year-old Sav Rodgers watched the film Chasing Amy, and his life was forever changed. Developing a kinship — and maybe a slight obsession — with it as he grew into his queerness, he decides to fund and direct a documentary that examines its role in LGBTQ+ film culture. He makes significant progress, even garnering the support and collaboration of its director, Kevin Smith. However, as the production of the documentary continues, Rodgers realizes that the legacy of the film and his relationship with it might be changing. So where does that leave him?
In this celebration of identity and LGBTQ+ film culture, Rodgers provides a new outlook on a complicated classic. By shifting his lens between himself and the participants, which include Go Fish screenwriter Guinevere Turner and Fire Island director Andrew Ahn, this documentary proves how vital nuanced filmmaking, and art in general, can be to LGBTQ+ communities.––Jose Rodriguez
