The Guys Next Door


Allie Humenuk, Amy Geller USA | 2016 | 75 mins California Premiere

The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival presents The Guys Next Door, a timely film offering a provocative alternative to the traditional ideas of what constitutes the nuclear American family.

The proverbial "girl next door" in The Guys Next Door is anything but a familiar cliché. Rachel is over 40, grew up Jewish and is married with three biological kids of her own when she decides to become a gestational surrogate for her gay best friend and his Italian boyfriend. Not just once but twice! This documentary follows the blended, extended family for three years as they navigate 21st century questions about parenting, identity, intimacy and connection.

We are so excited to Co-Present The Guys Next Door at #SFJFF37! For screening times and tickets, follow this link.
