We’ve just discovered an adorable and fun documentary that will air in the near future.
Margin Films has announced the upcoming release of the documentary Gay Hollywood Dad by and starring Quentin Lee.
According to Broadway World, the film follows Lee has he adapts to becoming a father of a newborn baby through surrogacy. “What have I gotten myself into!?” thinks Lee as he explores the first six weeks of being a single father living in Los Angeles. Viewers witness that timeline starting from cutting the umbilical cord to bringing the baby to his first independent film premiere.
Gay Hollywood Dad was originally planned to be a web series, but was later changed into a feature-length film that will now premiere on August 2nd at the New York Asian American International Film Festival. Then, it will appear online on August 3rd through Amazon Instant Video.
Quentin Lee, and son Casper, are joined by filmmakers Adrian Ho and Viet Dang, gestational carrier Crystal Primavera, and actresses Tamlyn Tomita ("Teen Wolf", The Joy Luck Club), Julia Nickson (Rambo: First Blood Part II, Half-Life), Akemi Look (The Unbidden) and Elizabeth Sung (Memoirs of a Geisha, LETHAL WEAPON 4).
While most of us will have to wait until August 3 to watch the feature-length film, the first episode of the web series was uploaded online last year. To get a better idea of what the film will be like, you can watch the series pilot down below.
