Matt Shepard Documentary DVD

By Charlotte Robinson, November 05, 2015
Education Pictures & Virgil Entertainment are honored to announce the DVD & Digital HD release of Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine directed by Michele Josue. This a very moving film by someone from Matt's life. Josue's journey took her across the United States, Switzerland & Morocco & the heartfelt result has screened at over two dozen festivals worldwide. We interviewed Josue a few years ago on OUTTAKE VOICES when we asked her what her personal commitment is to LGBT civil rights Michele stated, “I think gay or straight, I think that everyone should have a commitment to LGBT civil rights. You know gay rights are human rights & the struggle affects all of us. For me it’s really important to stand up for my gay family members, my gay friends, Matt & all the Matt Shepards out there. To fight for their rights to be acknowledged as equal members of society, deserving of every equality that everyone else has… So through the film I’m trying to do my part for LGBT equality.” After over a year on the international festival circuit, taking home 10 Best Documentary & Audience Choice Awards, as well as a unanimously acclaimed theatrical run earlier this year in the US & Canada, the film is available now to purchase on DVD & to rent or own on all digital platforms.
