On Monday, March 22nd at 7:00pm EST, join our conversation - live from Israel via Zoom - with Double Income, Kids director Hendrik Schäefer and the two dads, Motty Garcia and Alon Gvili.

With adoption and surrogacy illegal for gay couples in Israel, Motty and Alon have been forced to look further afield in their quest to have a child. Double Income, Kids chronicles a year in their lives, from the relationship they form - through Skype - with their surrogate in the United States, to the challenges they face – not always spoken, but deeply felt - from their families, to the reality of being sleep-deprived, overwhelmed parents. A story that is both personal and universal, the film deals with discrimination and acceptance, and is, ultimately, a joyful celebration of love and family.
