Screening of Oriented

Aritha Wickramasinghe and Pride in London present a special screening of the film ORIENTED at London's eclectic Ham Yard Hotel in this special Pride Festival warm-up event.

ORIENTED follows the lives of three Palestinian friends exploring their national and sexual identity in Tel-Aviv during the Israel-Gaza conflict of 2014. Khader is a Tel Aviv "darling" from a prominent Muslim mafia family living with his Jewish boyfriend, David, a local LGBT nightlife impresario, and their Dalmatian, Otis, in Tel Aviv. Khader is conflicted by his desire for change in the face of a seemingly hopeless situation. Fadi is an ardent Palestinian nationalist confronted by guilt-ridden Jewish love and Naeem must confront his family with the truth about his sexuality.

Determined to make a change, these three best friends form a non-violent, cultural resistance group (“Qambuta”) making viral content for gender and national equality. While their work may not change the world, it certainly helps them deal with the frustration of living with multi-faceted identities.

Followed by a panel discussion on the LGBT experience of cultural minorities from an inter-generational point of view including ORIENTED director Jake Witzenfeld, actor Khader Abu Seif and film producer Hanan Kattan and then a drinks reception.
