Philippe Faucon’s three part miniseries Proud was released in France back in 2018 and now gets a trailer for its US release, where it is packaged as a narrative film. The series chronicles three different years (1981, 1999, and 2013) pivotal to gay rights in France, exploring them through the multi-generational saga of one French family. The official synopsis notes:
“In 1981, it was still illegal to be gay in France. Today, same-sex marriage is recognized and has paved the way for legalizing the adoption of children by LGBTQ families. PROUD tells the story of Charles, Victor and Diego, three generations of the same family who represent the seismic social changes that took place in just three decades. From the award-winning director of Fatima (the 2016 Cesar winner for Best Film), this three-part episodic cinema event is a chronology of tolerance and a portrait of one family through changing times.“
We’ve yet to see the series, but from the impact of the trailer we are already somewhat emotionally devastated from the emotionally hard hitting trailer.
Proud is now available to stream on VOD and digital download.
