Imagine a world where HIV never existed at IfTheyLived.com - FATHERS is a sci-fi "documentary" by Leo Herrera that imagines an alternative universe where our queer artists and activists had lived. Who would they be today? What would our world be? Would we have a gay president? These are the questions Fathers will explore in a film that can only be described as "Cruising meets Black Mirror meets Beyonce's Lemonade." Please imagine this world by donating at IfTheyLived.com
The series of portraits featured in this trailer were created using age-progression, a technique used by law enforcement to find missing children. The aging is achieved through collage: the hairline of movie star for example, or hand-drawn wrinkles and gray hairs. Each portrait took approximately 40 hours to create.
