Philip Kan Gotanda
Health/Mental Health & AIDS, Lesbian, Gay & Bisexual, Men
THE KISS is the story of Wilfred Funai, a quiet, unassuming office worker whose defense from the hostile treatment by co-workers is to hide inside a small, regimented world. One day, he witnesses an event where he will either remain isolated or respond to a crisis, perhaps even at risk to himself. Either choice will change his life forever. The film marks the directorial and acting debut of Philip Kan Gotanda, an award-winning playwright best known for 'The Wash,' 'Fish Head Soup,' and 'Yankee Dawg You Die.'
“FOUR STARS! …effectively raises issues about discrimination against gay persons, persons with AIDS and persons who are simply different.”
