THE FATHERS PROJECT

Imagine a world where AIDS never happened and our heroes lived. Who would they be? Who would we be? Fathers Project is a web series that explores these questions in short documentaries, weaving history, real life events and fiction to create an image of a queer utopia.

Written, directed & edited by Leo Herrera.
