STEPHEN EYER & DANEEN AKERS
DIRECTORS - SEVENTH GAY ADVENTISTS

Daneen and Stephen have been working together on projects since they met in college 15 years ago. Their first feature-length documentary, Living With Fibromyalgia: A Journey of Hope and Understanding, examines the challenges of living with debilitating chronic pain in a culture that values achievement and physical perfection. That film has been screened on every continent except Antarctica and received the 2008 Communicator Award of Excellence, the Platinum Remi Award at the Houston Worldfest International Film Festival, and the National Health Information Gold Award.

Even though raising a toddler and "birthing" a film are all-encompassing tasks, Daneen tries to find time to play, dance, and just be a mom.

Stephen has worked on numerous film productions in a variety of roles (producer, sound designer, editor, production office coordinator, camera operator), and he finds all aspects of filmmaking both artistically and technically rewarding. Stephen recently taught film at Pacific Union College in the Napa Valley for several years, but is currently focusing on producing independent films along with Daneen that foster an awareness of our shared humanity and reinforce our connections to each other. In addition to documentary filmmaking, Stephen enjoys working on short films and recently won the Best of Fest award in the San Francisco-based Scary Cow Film Co-op for Echo’s Wonder, a short film he co-produced. Along with Daneen, he co-directed and produced the 2006 feature-length documentary, Living With Fibromyalgia.

Daneen and Stephen helped organize the 2008 Adventists Against Prop 8 activism campaign in response to the fear tactics being used within churches to deny same-sex couples the right to marry. This film is the outgrowth of that project and the stories they encountered.

USA, 2012
RUNNING TIME: 105 MINUTES
SCREENING: 2:30 PM, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7TH AT THE GUILD CINEMA

Faith, identity, and sexuality collide as three diverse gay and lesbian Seventh- Day Adventists struggle to follow both their church and their hearts.

His five-year-long "ex-gay" experience behind him, David seeks to fit his new boyfriend into his family and community. Marcos, a deposed Brazilian pastor, fights to reconnect with his calling and win back his job. Sherri wants to give her own kids the same upbringing she had despite her church’s response to her love for another woman. Each is working to find a sense of place and belonging in the fastest growing Christian denomination in the United States.

SEVENTH-GAY ADVENTISTS follows their raw and moving spiritual journeys as they wrestle with deep questions of identity and belonging.
