A documentary on gay, lesbian, and transgender Muslims across the Muslim and Western worlds.
The Spotlight on Documentary Series will be focusing on Parvez Sharma, an award-winning writer and filmmaker. This series is brought to us by the E.W Scripps School of Journalism, the College of Arts and Sciences “Love and Hate” Theme, and the Center for Law, Justice, and Culture.
“Mr. Sharma’s film emphasizes testimony over context to such a degree that it feels at first of little use to anyone except gay Muslims who might take comfort in knowing they’re not alone. But the documentary gains depth of feeling as it goes and even develops something of a nail-biting narrative.” – Nathan Lee, The New York Times
“Even though the message that people should have the right to love whomever they want is hardly groundbreaking, Parvez captures some interesting conversations about what it means to be gay and Muslim.” – Noel Murray, The A.V. Club
