We're delighted to announce that actor Nicholas Jabcob, film journalist Charles Gant and Stonewall’s International Officer Jasmine O’Connor will join us for a Q&A after the screening.
When they meet in a Tel Aviv gay bar, handsome, privileged young lawyer Roy (Michael Aloni) falls for nervous Palestinian Nimr (Nicholas Jacob), who is visiting the city on a student visa.
Back home, Nimr’s thuggish brother stores illegal weapons and inflicts justice on suspected Israeli informants, and like their mother, he only vaguely suspects Nimr’s sexuality. After refusing to betray his brother to Israeli security – and finally coming out to his family – Nimr is forced to seek refuge in Roy’s apartment, where things only get worse.
Echoing some aspects of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, Israeli-born director Michael Mayer’s debut feature is a darker, more desperate drama, with overt political resonances.
Committed performances, a taut script and gritty cinematography render OUT IN THE DARK all the more compelling.
