I AM GAY AND MUSLIM

I AM GAY AND MUSLIM
Chris Belloni, Marocco, Olanda 2012, 59’

Il documentario si concentra sul tema dei diritti dei gay nel mondo islamico, attraverso le storie di alcuni giovani gay marocchini e la loro esplorazione della propria identità religiosa e sessuale. Spinto dalla attuale situazione politica in cui l’omosessualità e l’Islam sembrano essere inconciliabili, il regista Chris Belloni ha trascorso la maggior parte del 2011 viaggiando in Marocco per intervistare i musulmani gay. Gli uomini ritratti nel film condividono apertamente le loro esperienze personali e descrivono l’ambiguità e la segretezza con cui sono condannati a vivere la loro vita.
