The US Embassy looks like it will defy anti-gay laws in Russia by adding a screening of I AM MICHAEL to a film festival it is sponsoring in September.

Amfest, which will run from the 16-27th September in Moscow and St. Petersburg announced that it added Justin Kelly’s directorial debut, I Am Michael, starring James Franco and Zachary Quinto to its line up of films.

I AM MICHAEL documents the true story of a gay activist who turns straight and becomes a Christian pastor. The film has won a number of awards including FilmOut International Film Festival – Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor


Although the anti-gay Russian legislation, which was introduced in 2013, doesn’t ban films about homosexuality it does become illegal if someone under the age of 18 should watch the presentation.
