I AM GAY AND MUSLIM
I AM GAY AND MUSLIM. Directed by Chris Belloni. Netherlands. 2012.60 min. Dutch and Arabic with English subtitles
The film follows a number of Moroccan homosexual young men aged, in their exploration of their religious and sexual identity. The very different boys share their personal and emotional experiences on camera. ‘I AM GAY AND MUSLIM’ aims to raise awareness and break the taboo surrounding homosexuality while exposing a broad spectrum of dilemmas that the boys struggle with or have overcome in the past. The Arab spring seems to have awakened in Morocco as well. People wish to live freely and openly. I have decided to portray people who look ahead and are not afraid to state their opinions. Secondly I have attempted to give a platform to people that have no voice in politics and media.
