I Am Another You

Apr 2 - May 9, 2021

By Ed Decker with Robert Leone

World Premiere

How far would you go to find home? In Athens, two young gay Syrian refugees risk everything to find a safe place to be together. On the other side of the world, a genderfluid parent defends the family they’ve built in an unwelcoming Nevada town. As each fights for the people they love and a place to belong, their stories intertwine into a gripping and heartfelt tale of connection beyond borders, and the universal need to find home.
