Chasing Chasing Amy trailer previews Sav Rodgers’s documentary about the Kevin Smith film

Date:

The Chasing Chasing Amy trailer presents Sav Rodgers’s documentary about discovering identity through Kevin Smith’s controversial film.

Movies mean different things to different people. Predicting which films will strike a chord for any individual is impossible, and some movies become more personal than others. For Sav Rodgers, Kevin Smith‘s Chasing Amy helped him discover truths he could not define. In today’s Chasing Chasing Amy trailer, we find Rodgers going on a journey of self-discovery for a documentary focusing on Smith’s confrontational LGBTQ+ romance film.

The feature documentary explores the transformational impact of the ’90s rom-com on a 12-year-old queer kid from Kansas, coming of age and coming to terms with his identity. The Kevin Smith cult classic became a life raft for young Sav Rodgers. As Rodgers examines the film and its making as a cornerstone of LGBTQ+ cinema, he finds himself at a difficult crossroads. While Sav finds Chasing Amy a gateway to becoming more comfortable with his identity, sections of the LGBTQ+ community think Smith’s film is polarizing and harmful to the community.

Sav Rodgers says about the upcoming world premiere: “The journey of making Chasing Chasing Amy has been eye-opening in so many ways. When I was younger, I felt like I had to defend my connection with Chasing Amy to other LGBTQ+ people despite its deeply personal significance. This movie that saved my life also holds a controversial history in queer film canon. I hope Chasing Chasing Amy and its making shows that things can be complicated, as can people, and the relationship we have with the movies we grow up with can be that, too.”

As you can see from the Chasing Chasing Amy trailer, the documentary features in-depth interviews with cast and crew members behind the making of Chasing Amy, including Smith, Joey Lauren Adams, and more. The film also explores the film’s origin, investigates the controversy behind the movie’s rejection, and presents another side of adoration for problematic cinema.

Chasing Chasing Amy will have its premiere at Tribeca Festival 2023. Kevin Smith, Guinevere Turner, Joey Lauren Adams, Scott Mosier, Sav Rodgers, Andrew Ahn, Kevin Willmott, Trish Bendix, Princess Weekes, Regina “Riley” Rodgers star, with Alex Schmider, Carrie Radigan, Lela Meadow-Conner, Matthew C. Mills & Sav Rodgers producing.
