Family You Hate Me
Gaël Morel
Documentary : 52' / Family, Community, Homophobia, Youth, Transphobia

Through the portraits of young adults excluded from their family homes because of their sexuality, Gaël Morel wants to show the impact of one of the worst kinds of homophobia and transphobia: that which is practiced within the family. How do young people learn again to live, to respect themselves and to project themselves into the future after being destroyed by those who should have loved and protected them?

Gaël Morel


Gaël Morel (Villefranche-sur-Saône, France, 1972) is a French film director, screenwriter, and actor. At the age of 15, he left home to pursue film studies in Lyon, and later moved to Paris. There he met director André Téchiné who cast him in his 1994 film Les Roseaux Sauvages, which brought him worldwide fame. While his co-stars in that film both went on to successful acting careers, Morel chose to pursue a career behind the camera.
