Love is All You Need? Is based on a 19-minute short film of the same name, which went viral in 2013, garnering more than 50 million views. The film has won numerous festival awards across the world and tackles issues of prejudice and human rights. Set in a world where homosexuality is considered normal and heterosexuality is taboo, the film explores discrimination from the “if gay were straight and straight were gay” perspective, and is designed as a tool to help the LGBT community educate people about what it’s like to be marginalized simply because of whom you love.
