Limited Partnership: A film by Thomas Miller & Kirk Marcolina

Decades before The Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, one gay couple, a Filipino American and an Australian, fell in love. Over the course of 40 years, they took on the U.S. government to fight for marriage and immigration equality.

This season, Community Cinema celebrates 10 years of uniting people through independent film. Community Cinema presents free screenings and discussions around the Emmy Award-winning PBS documentary series Independent Lens.
