Abstract

Screening: "Oriented," a film by Jake Witzenfeld and Discussion with Khader Abu Seif

Tue March 8 @ 7-9pm, Davis Auditorium

Oriented (2015) follows the lives of three gay Palestinian friends confronting their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv, including Khader Abu Seif. Determined to "change their reality," the three best friends form a group called "Qambuta," a non-violent, cultural resistance movement fighting for gender and national equality. Through their activism, they address what it means to grow up with the burden of a multi-faceted identity.

This event is free and open to the public.
