Duration/ Trajanje: 65 min.

Kreg i Šejn su se držali za ruke kada su postali žrtve brutalnog zločina mržnje u blizini Oksford ulice u Sidneju 2007 godine. Slika Krekovog unakaženog lica je osvanula na naslovnoj strani lokalnih novina i pozvala sidnejsku gej zajednicu da preuzme akciju, par je nakon toga bio proglašen za lidere na 2008. sidnejskoj Mardi Gras paradi. Najteža godina života ovog para je dokumentovana beskrajnim operacijama, fizičkim i psihološkim oporavcima i njihovom borbom u planiranju budućnosti. Ali, u srcu svega ovoga, „Držajući se za ruke“otkriva da čak i u najgorim okolnostima možemo da stvorimo najpozitivnije promene.

Craig and Shane were holding hands when they fell victim to a brutal hate crime off Sydney’s Oxford Street in 2007. The image of Craig’s shattered face on the cover of the local newspaper called Sydney’s queer community to action, and the couple were nominated leaders of the 2008 Sydney Mardi Gras Parade. The hardest year of this young couple’s lives is documented through endless surgeries, physical and psychological recovery and their struggle to plan for their future. But at its heart, Holding Hands reveals that even in the worst circumstances, we can all create positive change.
