Marriage. "Just a Word." A short film by Mimi Schiffman

Posted by on Mon, May 7, 2012 at 3:35 PM

I loved this earlier short by Mimi Schiffman called "Love = Love." I just don't see how you could vote for Amendment 1 after watching it. But then I am always the optimist.

So here's another Schiffman gem. (Thanks for sending it, Mimi.) It's a four-minute film about love, marriage and two guys from North Carolina who went to Washington, D.C., a few days ago because there they could have both.

She calls it "Just a Word."

"You know, everybody says it's just a word, but there's more to it. There's a feeling of belonging," said Jeff Enochs of Charlotte, N.C. "I wanted my state to recognize that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together."
