Love requires compromise and, often, sacrifice. But where is the line? When is enough enough? That is at the core of ADRIAN Y SEBASTIAN, a feature film that tells the story of two Colombian immigrants an openly gay life in New York. When Sebastian’s visa is rejected, Adrian and Sebastian must make the decision of whether to return to Colombia, where they face rejection or attempt to stay in the United States.
The film explores themes of sacrifice and fear within the context of Colombians of the LGBT community. While progress has been made in Colombia for the LGBT community, it continues to be marginalized by the conservative population. As one of the first LGBT Colombian films, it is our hope to shed some light on the community. This is about giving voice to those who are often silenced or ignored and starting a dialogue on the importance of respect and love.
Moreover, the film places our characters within the context of the difficult immigration situation in the US, furthering this sense of homelessness and lack of belonging for our main protagonists. We often ask, where do I belong? But what if the places that you believe you belong are the ones that don’t want you? That is yet another challenge that our heroes wrestle with, their relationship always hanging in the balance.
