BUILDING A BRIDGE follows Father James Martin on his journey to make the Catholic Church more accepting of the LGBTQ+ community, despite loud opposition from within and outside the Church.

Horrified by Catholic leaders’ silence in the wake of the Pulse nightclub massacre, Father Martin writes a widely-acclaimed book and tours the country speaking with the news media, local parishes and LGBTQ+ Catholics with his message of “ compassion, respect and sensitivity.”

Closely following Father Martin and the individuals whose lives he has impacted, Evan Mascagni and Shannon Post's film offers the hopeful message that despite many differences, we can find greater understanding in the path toward equality and justice.
