Chasing Chasing Amy explores the transformational impact of a ‘90s rom-com on a 12-year-old kid from Kansas, coming of age and contending with queer identity. For young Sav Rodgers, the Kevin Smith cult classic, Chasing Amy, became a life raft.
As Rodgers examines the film and its making as a cornerstone of LGBTQ+ cinema, he discovers that the journey of making the movie was far more difficult and emotional than anyone could have possibly known. Chasing Chasing Amy is a trans coming of age love story, set against the backdrop of an indie film that solidified some careers and damaged others.
