The I Do Project

In 2017, Kim reprised the role of Charlie, when he joined 30 other Australian artists and filmmakers in The I Do Project.

I DO was created as an artists’ response to the decision of the Coalition Australian Government to run a non-binding Postal Survey around the issue of Marriage Equality (September – November 2017).

When making Kim’s film, we always had in mind the idea that this is Charlie, five years on, coming back to let fans of The Language of Love know that Charlie is doing just fine, and is a happy, confident gay young man. And, also, that maybe, just maybe, he’s received a letter from Sam, posing him a question, to which Charlie’s response is….

DO is a statement of belief in the idea of equality and of the right of a individual to place their trust and hope in a future to be shared with the person they love. It also imagines an Australia that is more open, inclusive, diverse, welcoming, and that looks towards the future with hope.

You can watch all 10 of the I DO films below, which includes statements from Sarah (Succession) Snook, Celia (Rosehaven) Pacquloa, Damon (Justified) Herriman and Yael Stone (Orange Is The New Black).
