Ein Film über drei homosexuelle Personen in Israel:

ORIENTED IS A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY THAT FOLLOWS THE LIVES OF THREE GAY PALESTINIAN FRIENDS CONFRONTING THEIR NATIONAL AND SEXUAL IDENTITY IN TEL AVIV.

KHADER IS A TEL AVIV „DARLING“ FROM A PROMINENT MUSLIM MAFIA FAMILY LIVING WITH HIS JEWISH BOYFRIEND DAVID AND THEIR DALMATION OTIS. FADI IS AN ARDENT PALESTINIAN NATIONALIST WHO FINDS HIMSELF FALLING IN LOVE WITH AN ISRAELI „ZIONIST.“ NAIM MUST CONFRONT HIS FAMILY WITH THE TRUTH ABOUT HIS SEXUALITY. ALL THREE ARE CONFLICTED BY THEIR DESIRE FOR CHANGE IN THE FACE OF A SEEMINGLY HOPELESS SITUATION. MEANWHILE, A WAR IS BREWING…

DETERMINED TO „CHANGE THEIR REALITY,“ THE THREE BEST FRIENDS FORM A GROUP CALLED „QAMBUTA“, A NON-VIOLENT, CULTURAL RESISTENCE 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.

THROUGH THE GLOBAL #getORIENTED SCREENING TOUR, ORIENTED IS SPARKING ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT AT THE COMMUNITY LEVEL AND INSPIRING DISCORSE AROUND LGBT RIGHTS, PERCEPTION OF THE OTHER IN CONFLICT ZONES AND THE ROLE OF GRASSROOTS SOCIAL ACTIVISM.
