Albert’s passion project The Commitment will have its UK premiere at London’s Queerbee LGBT Film Festival on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at Genesis Cinema and Hackney Showroom.
The Commitment stars Albert and Jason Lane Fenton as gay adoptive parents, Mary Niederkorn as the social worker facilitating the adoption, and Kerri Patterson as the Asian-American birthmother. Richard Propes of The Independent Critic wrote, “Emotional resonance, joy and heartbreak…indeed, this is a film that would be difficult to pull off if not for its tremendously talented cast.” The film has screened at 40 film festivals on five continents and won multiple awards, most notably edging out Oscar®-nominated Moonrise Kingdom to win a 2013 NASW Media Award. The film is available at Amazon.com on the compilation Green Briefs. The film is produced by Albert, Richard Possemato, Aaron Howland, and Seth Howland.
