About The Project
Love Land is about the importance of diverse (and often risky) experiences to the fulfillment of the human condition. It's about refusing to accept the segregation of the world's largest minority, and about jump-starting a cultural discourse in America to help change perceptions of “pity and fear” to those of “equal citizenship."
Love Land is a movie with nuanced, layered characters that reach beyond stereotypes, presenting characters with intellectual disabilities as complete and conflicted human beings—capable of good, evil, and grey—with far-reaching desires and vibrant, profound identities; it is a movie that dares to say that social views – not individual bodies – are the real barriers for people with disabilities; and it says that “charitable interaction” is unacceptable, proclaiming full community inclusion as a civil right.
About This Team
Disability advocates throughout the nation know and trust Josh Tate and his team to tell this story with integrity, originality, and industry-standard technique. Josh holds a BS in Film Production from UT Austin and Josh, Paul Gleason, Andrew Richey, and Maritte Go each hold an MFA in Cinematic Arts from USC.
During his time at USC, Josh directed two advanced projects, one under the mentorship of Sheldon Larry (Leave it On the Floor) and produced seven others. Josh’s combined knowledge of production and the disability rights movement is truly unprecedented, and with the support of a crew of cutting-edge and highly trained filmmakers, it’s difficult to imagine any other team coming close to executing the production of this story with the same depth of passion, understanding, artistic nuance, and—most importantly—humility
