The Sandoval 64 film clips

Introducing Mary and Norma. They were first in line on Feb. 20, 2004 to receive a marriage license at the Sandoval County Courthouse in Bernalillo, New Mexico. They are one of the couples featured in “The Sandoval 64.”

Jeff and Gordon were too far back in the line, waiting to get a marriage license, when the doors closed to marriage equality in New Mexico.

Jiivanii and Martha were the last couple to receive a license (although serveral couples were able to register their license after a brief ceremony on the courthouse lawn). Also appearing in this clip is their daughter Jennifer.

The Sandoval 64 Coming Soon!

“The Sandoval 64″ is a documentary project in the final stages of post-production. We hope to premiere the film in Albuquerque in early fall, 2011. A trailer for the film is in the works and will be posted soon.

Mary & Norma – first couple to request a license

“The Sandoval 64″ chronicles the marriage equality issue as it has occurred in New Mexico, featuring interviews from gay and lesbian couples who received marriage licenses on February 20, 2004, and those who tried to get licenses that day but were too far back in the line when the window closed. The film also covers the political maneuvering that has occurred in the New Mexico state legislature since 2004, until the most recent attempts to nullify equality in the 2011 legislative session.

Gordon & Jeff get a license in San Francisco

For all intent and purporses, the 64 marriage licenses granted that day are still legal, and have not been contested in a court of law, nor has the state legislature passed any legislation rescinding those licenses.

If you would like to contribute to the final post-production costs of this documentary film, just click on our “Donate” button. We will also be posting the project to IndieGoGo, with the trailer, in April. Your contribution to our film fund will receive the same incentives we will provide on IndieGoGo.

Thank you for your interest and support.
