My Dads, My Moms and Me
Julia Ivanova | 2019 | 85 mins
In her 2007 documentary Fatherhood Dreams, Julia Ivanova chronicled the touching and challenging journeys of four gay men who each made the decision to become parents after Canada legalized same-sex marriage. Married couple Randy and Drew adopted baby Jack. Scott connected with a surrogate to have twins Ella and Mac. Stephen decided to co-parent his daughters Jazz and Zea with lesbian couple Coreen and Wendy.
Fast forward twelve years — My Dads, My Moms and Me revisits the lives of these men and their children, now teenagers.
Incorporating clips from the original doc with contemporary interviews and scenes of daily lives, the film provides an intimate look at the obstacles and triumphs of these three queer families.
