Events for Activist Groups

Oriented

"Oriented" is a feature documentary that follows the lives of three gay Palestinian friends confronting their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv. 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.
