Film Screening: The Guys Next Door

Date: 

Sunday, June 4, 2017, 2:00pm

Location: 

Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA

Poster for screening of The Guys Next Door

Boston-area filmmakers Amy Geller and Allie Humenuk are thrilled to be partnering with three renowned local organizations—Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, the Family Equality Council, and Boston Pride—for a special screening event of their award-winning, feature-length documentary THE GUYS NEXT DOOR, followed by an illuminating panel about the evolution of the “American family” in the era of LGBTQ rights.

FILM SYNOPSIS: Rachel and Tony, a traditional married couple, live in the Boston suburbs with their three teenage children. But there’s nothing traditional about Rachel’s decision, at 41, to become a surrogate for Erik, her friend from college, and his husband Sandro, not once, but twice within two years. According to Geller: “In 2011, I read this extraordinary article about Rachel and her offer to have a baby for her friends Erik and Sandro and I wondered what would compel a woman in her 40s to do this? I immediately contacted my filmmaker friend Allie, and we arranged to meet the two families. We brought a camera along and from the first moment we started to shoot, we fell in love.”

Geller and Humenuk spent over three years filming this intimate portrait of a gay couple with two daughters birthed by their close friend. THE GUYS NEXT DOOR explores the struggles and possibilities that creating family brings. It is a timely film that both embraces and transcends gay rights and gay families. In the words of esteemed documentary filmmaker Ross McElwee (Sherman’s March), “with nuance, verve and humor, this film explores the humanity that connects us all.”

A panel following the screening will include:

  • ​Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, CEO of Planned Parenthood League of MA
  • Emily McGranachan, East Coast Regional Manager of the Family Equality Council
  • Dr. ​John Rosario,​ Boston-area psychologist.
  • Moderator: Erin Trahan, regular contributor to WBUR’s the ARTery
