Type of Film
Pedophiles are synonymously known as monsters, aberrations and perverts. But what if someone is attracted to children, yet does not act on that attraction? Amelia Evans journeys across the country, to live with and learn about men who have made a commitment not to act on their sexual desires for children.
About the Director(s)
Amelia Evans - Director/DoP/Co-editor. Obsessed with social justice, Amelia repressed her passion for filmmaking and became a human rights lawyer. In 2010, she traded Wellington, New Zealand, for another small, nerdy city: Cambridge, MA. While on a Fulbright Scholarship to Harvard Law School, she studied filmmaking under Ross McElwee and Alfred Guzzeti.
Now running a Cambridge, MA-based human rights organization, she’s made full space for filmmaking in her life. MINOR ATTRACTION is her first serious endeavor. She has collaborated on installations (Central/Central, 60min, with Pacho Velez & others) and worked on student films. In late Summer 2014 she will be a MacDowell Fellow, completing a residency at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire for MINOR ATTRACTION. In Fall 2014 she is expected to be a teaching assistant in video production at Harvard’s Visual Environmental School.
