Bayard & Me (Matt Wolf) - a short doc about gay civil rights leader Bayard Rustin who adopted his partner Walter Naegle in the era before same-sex marriage legalization.

“We champion artists who have something unique to say about the world and want to take creative risks with us,” says Wolfgang Hammer, president of Super Deluxe.
