Australia has yet to legalize same-sex marriage, but one filmmaker hopes that 2016 will be the year in which the country stands up for love. Laura Ngay created a beautiful short film called, “We Will” that promotes marriage equality in Australia.
The short film follows two women who fall in love, the beauty of their relationship, and even the low moments. It then shows the two getting married and friends and family celebrating the union of their love in a reception following the ceremony.
The entire film is narrated by one of the women. Probably the most moving of quotes is when the narrator said, “I don’t want to say ‘I Do,’ that’d be too easy. I’d rather say ‘We did,’ when they said we shouldn’t. ‘We do,’ when they said we wouldn’t. I’d rather say, ‘We will,’ even when they say we can’t.”
Check out this video below and get ready to tear up! For 2016, we stand by you Australia! Love will win and we look forward to celebrating with you when it does.
