PBS Premiere: August 26, 2003


What happens when fundamentalist Christian parents have children who are homosexual? Family Fundamentals is filmmaker Arthur Dong’s personal attempt to answer that explosive question. Armed with a digital camera, Dong takes viewers into the private and public lives of three families who have responded to gay offspring by actively opposing homosexuality. Family Fundamentals is a battlefield report from America’s profound and disquieting culture war over gay issues. Produced in association with P.O.V./American Documentary.
