papa&dada

Documentary film by Daniela Ambrosoli, produced in 2021.
In her new documentary film "papa&dada," the award-winning Swiss director Daniela Ambrosoli shows what it means to raise children as a homosexual couple. Four couples, including the famous ballet dancer John Lam and his husband John Ruggieri, talk about of the tough challenges and inspiring joys they experienced in becoming a family.
So far, the film has been nominated "Best Documentary" for the Love Story Film Festival London 2022 and was finalist for the Swedish Luleå International Film Festival.
