coming out is seldom easy
We had met Mart through our previous short film, Sibling, so when he approached us with the idea to make a short documentary addressing the curiosity and anxiety of 'coming out', and how various gay people faced this rite of passage, we were more than happy to pick up a camera and help.
We spent one day on the streets of Melbourne and well-known gay bars approaching and asking people, with some trepidation, to share their personal experiences with us. But the trepidation was unwarranted; people were happy to open up, and everyone had a unique story to tell.
The result is a heart-felt and very human documentary about being true to yourself and letting everyone know who you really are.
Coming Out is available to watch for free below.
