(A)sexual follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies show that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, verite footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery,David and our four other characters grapple with this universal question and the outcomes might surprise you.

(A)sexual is a window into a subculture that people know very little about, a subculture that is growing. Our film will use humor and popular culture to make this serious subject interesting and accessible. Like the influential The King of Kong and Scratch, (A)sexual will engage the public in dialogue about a community that they never knew about, or considered seriously, before seeing the film.
