Seed Money is the story of Chuck Holmes, a San Francisco pornographer and founder of Falcon Studios turned philanthropist. Holmes helped shape and create gay identity in the years after Stonewall, and became a founder of gay advocacy groups like the Human Rights Campaign and the LGBT Victory Fund, only to find later in life that while his money was welcome in philanthropic circles, he wasn’t.
“Seed Money evokes the era of sexual liberation…captures a point in time in which sexual freedom for gay men was both an act of hedonism and politics.” — Mark James, Film International
