Why We Made A Documentary Film About Greg Louganis

Three years ago we read that Olympic Champion diver Greg Louganis was returning to the sport of diving -- as a coach and Olympic mentor -- after a two decade-long absence. As filmmakers in our late thirties, we both had fond and vivid memories of Greg in the Olympic Games. We thought a film about Louganis and his return to the sport synonomous with his name would make for an incredible film.

Frameline Review: Julián Hernández's Sexy 'I Am Happiness on Earth' Will Get Under Your Skin

Julián Hernández eroticizes nude men like no other filmmaker. His camera practically caresses the actors’ bodies, and viewers who appreciate his distinctive style of cinema often share the palpable desire his characters feel. His latest film, I am Happiness on Earth is not unlike his earlier film, Broken Sky, in that it tells of a love triangle where much of the communication is done without dialogue.
