South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

Title: The Experiment: Gay & Straight
Director: Mark Saxenmeyer
Specs: USA English 2003 video 90min



Out In Africa Film Festival
Take Big Brother and give it an edge. Yes, make it interesting.

The Experiment creates a potentially explosive situation by putting 5 gay and 5 straight people, from different racial and social groups with diametrically opposite beliefs and attitudes, in a house for a week to battle it out.

This is reality with a purpose and it makes compelling viewing. It confronts the deep-seated stereo-types and misconceptions that fuel the hatred, violence, and religion-sanctioned bigotry the gay community lives with in the US. The house confronts the brutal reality of AIDS, family rejection, and gay love with the same passion. As the occupants emotionally slug it out, understanding dawns and deep-connections are forged. The tension is tangible, and the results are up-lifting.

Mark Saxenmeyer and Producer Darlene Hill who are guests of the Festival.
