“I am very honoured to have my debut feature documentary not only as an official selection at the UK Asian Film Festival but selected to be one of 3 festival films chosen to participate in the Emerging Curators Award. I made this documentary to create public awareness and educate our community and save lives. We don’t want any queer kids to be disowned or rejected. We want them to be embraced and loved by their parents and families,” states Alex Sangha who is the Producer and one of the primary cast in Emergence: Out of the Shadows.
