What if You are Born into a Mormon Family…AND GAY?!



 I  just watched the preview version of THE FALLS!  Awesome acting and a wonderful story about breaking away from your family wants for you – and following your heart!

Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce the December 4 DVD release of The Falls
(SRP $24.99, about $18 at Amazon). Reminiscent of The Seminarian and Latter Days, The Falls
is the story of two young Mormon men beginning to question just what it
means to be faithful to God while being true to themselves. Ultimately,
it illuminates one basic truth: that love is not a sin.

R.J. and Chris  were born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. Now known as Elder Smith (Nick Ferrucci)  and Elder Merrill (Benjamin Farmer), both have
pretty girlfriends, were Eagle Scouts, and have perfect academic
records. Now, it’s their turn to serve a mission and experience the
Mormon rite of passage.

RJ travels to a small town in Oregon with Elder Merrill to serve their
mission and teach the words of Joseph Smith. Living together and sharing
the challenge of leaving home, the two men help each other discover
their strengths. They share a passion for their faith and learn to
express their feelings, risking the only community they have for a
forbidden intimacy.

Unknown to them, serving a mission will not only open the doors to
strangers’ households – where they preach the Gospel and experience
point of views they never expected – but it will open up secrets in
their own lives – and feelings that they’ve long kept buried.

The Falls captures the lives of two young men struggling to make
sense of the conflict between their worlds, their desires, and each
other. What they ultimately discover is a challenge to them both, but
also an affirmation of the human spirit.

The Falls
has played at the Mix Mexico International Film
Festival, Outview, the Vancouver Queer Film Fest, and is scheduled to
play Seattle Gay and Lesbian Film Fest, Rochester Gay and Lesbian Film
Festival, Tampa Gay and Lesbian Festival, and Atlanta Gay and Lesbian
Festival before its DVD debut.

“Director Jon Garcia has crafted a quiet, intimate film that truly
expresses the love, desire and conflict between the two talented leads. The Falls
is an amazing, assured debut film,” said Richard Ross, Breaking Glass Co-President.

The DVD release will come complete with an exclusive behind-the-scenes
featurette showcasing the director and stars in their creative process
during the making of The Falls.
