导演阐述

《我认识你吗?》探讨了关于家庭和养育子女的主题,以及为人父母的真正意义。我们并不常看到围绕同性恋家庭或同性恋父母而展开的故事。莎拉和巴里的剧本巧妙地探讨了从精子捐赠开始建立家庭这一过程的复杂性。罗宾问母亲自己为什么没有爸爸的时刻,是影片的关键。而杰西卡也不得不接受女儿的愿望:去见那个为创造她“助一臂之力”的人。归根结底,家庭不仅仅是生物学上的东西——它是我们分享的生活,是我们亲近的人,是我们给予的爱……

Synopsis

Jessica is eager to make breakfast for her new girlfriend but little does she know her daughter Robyn has invited someone unexpected…

As Robyn invites her sperm donor father around for breakfast, confusion and tension rise as Jessica is confronted when she realises her daughter wants a father. DO I KNOW YOU explores queer family dynamics and IVF parenthood and asks what it really means to be a parent.

Director’s Statement

DO I KNOW YOU explores themes about family, parenting and what it truly means to be a parent. We don’t often see stories that revolve around queer families or queer parenting – and Sarah and Barry’s script delicately broaches the complexities of starting a family from a sperm donor. The film hinges on a moment where Robyn asks her mother why she hasn’t a dad – and Jessica has to make a journey to accept her daughter’s wishes to meet the man who ‘helped’ create her. Ultimately, family is more than just biology – it’s the lives we share, the people we are close to, the love we give…
