Audience Award, 2014 Cinema Q Film Festival

Chances are you have not heard of Filipino American Richard Adams and his Australian husband, Tony Sullivan. They were legally married in Colorado in 1975, but when Richard applied for a green card for his husband, the Immigration and Naturalization Service officially called them “faggots” and denied their application. The couple sued to prevent deportation and filed the first federal lawsuit seeking equal treatment for a same-sex marriage in U.S. history.

LIMITED PARTNERSHIP is a documentary about many resonant issues in America today: marriage equality, immigration reform. But above all, it is a love story that fuels a 43-year path toward justice, traversing continents and living under the radar to avoid persecution and separation from family and friends. It’s an inspiring journey that shows that the fight for equality can be life’s work, as well as love’s work. –Wilda Wong
