Los Angeles – Monday, June 17, 2013 – Filmmaker/Director Greg Andermann explores the issues behind the cultural battle over same-sex marriage in his new film “Chasing Rainbows” now available for digital download and streaming exclusively on Chill.com for $9.99.

Set against the backdrop of a two-year battle over civil unions in Hawaii and the finality of Proposition 8 in California, CHASING RAINBOWS explores an explosive issue in our nation: the battle between the evangelical church and the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) movement in America.

Filmmaker Greg Andermann, guides viewers through the first unbiased and in-depth look at the issues surrounding gay marriage and civil unions. Raw, humorous, and thought provoking, CHASING RAINBOWS humanizes the people engaged in the issue and serves as a revealing portrayal of why Americans think and feel the way they do about homosexuality and gay marriage. The conflicts over gay marriage and same sex civil unions are particularly painful and divisive, since they deal with the heart, morality and religion.

“What struck me the most was the absolute polarization that prevents each side from understanding the other,” said Filmmaker/Director Greg Andermann.

Courageous and at times outrageous, CHASING RAINBOWS presents this battle between the Church’s religious imperatives and dogma and the LGBT community – and what many feel to be civil rights issues — in an honest, direct and intimate way. Premiered at the Hawaii International Film Festival to sell-out audiences, CHASING RAINBOWS does what no other film has done before – tackles both sides of the same sex issue in a compelling and eye-opening movie that will entertain while it enlightens.

“Both sides of the issue have been heard, but Chasing Rainbows gives a different side,” said Mari-Ela David of CBS-TV News, Honolulu, “one that is the perspective of the average Joe.”

The film is timely and on the cutting edge in light of the ensuing U.S. Supreme Court decision over California’s Prop 8 and the potential overturn of the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) as more states adopt civil unions and same sex marriage laws. Early audience response to CHASING RAINBOWS has consistently demonstrated that Americans are largely uninformed about the issues and want to be informed. The film takes the viewer down a fact-finding path in search of the truth. Viewers are challenged to decide just how they feel about civil unions and same sex marriage, and for most the truth may be surprising.
