Twin daughters of lesbians collaborate to tell the story of what their mothers’ legal marriage means to them. The 14-year-old girls served as “docu-maidens,” carrying flip video cameras instead of bouquets to record the 2008 ceremony. Phranc, the All-American Jewish lesbian folk singer, wrote and performed an original song for the event. The story unfolds against the backdrop of the battle against California’s Proposition 8. Not your typical home movie, this short documentary offers a glimpse into the life of an artistic lesbian family.

Credits: Directed and edited by Marka Maberry-Gaulke (age 15), written and narrated by Xochi Maberry-Gaulke (age 15), co-produced and edited by Cheri Gaulke and Sue Maberry.
