A cinephile’s pilgrimage takes more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at, as Sav Rodgers plunges deep into the legacy of Kevin Smith’s indie hit.

Chasing Amy is a film that meant so much to Sav growing up in Kansas. For the first time, it showed lives where people could be their authentic selves. Now as a director, Sav had the unique opportunity to step inside the real locations for the film, interview the participants and also grow and find an authentic identity as an adult.
