For those of you who happen to live under a rock, the Winter Olympicsare currently taking place in Sochi, Russia.
Due to laws passed by Russia in June 2013 that prohibit anyone from distributing any information about homosexuality to children, many people -- citizens and officials alike -- are boycotting the Olympics. Award-winning film directors The Perez Brothers have made their opinions on the subject known in their latest short film The Weigh In. It simultaneously gives the finger to homophobia and a new meaning to the term "contact sports."
You may be familiar with other works by The Perez Brothers; they've made several music videos for bands such as Mister Loveless and the Oakland band Tremor Low. Their films have also appeared on ESPN.
