ATTEND THE 2013 JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL: Out in the Dark, in Hebrew and Arabic

Out in the Dark
Pittsburgh Premiere
Director: Michael Mayer
2012, Israel/Palestinian Territories/USA, 96 minutes
Hebrew and Arabic with subtitles




It’s hard enough when a Palestinian and an Israeli fall in love. But it’s even more difficult when both are gay men. Nimr, an aspiring Palestinian psychologist, and Roy, an Israeli lawyer, meet in a Tel Aviv nightclub. Nimr faces ostracism in his culture for his sexual orientation and alienation in Israel for his nationality; the fact that his brother is a terrorist only adds to his problems. What starts out as a tender and sensual border-crossing romance becomes a suspenseful thriller with a gritty visual palette that heightens the sense of urgency.

Winner - Best Narrative – 2012 Haifa International Film Festival

Director Michael Mayer will speak following the April 18 screening.

In collaboration with Reel Q: Pittsburgh's LGBT Film Festival.

    For anyone who missed this, it is playing again on Thursday night, at the Manor Theater. It is moving, and thrilling.
