AFME Presents: The Invisible Men

A Film of Jewish Interest: The Albuquerque Film & Media Experience is proud to present:

The Invisible Men
Shown With: Everything is Alright
Friday June 7 ~ 6:45 pm
Guild Cinema

The Invisible Men tells the untold story of persecuted gay Palestinians who have run away from their families and are now hiding illegally in Tel Aviv.

Their stories are told through the film's heroes: Louie, 32 years old, a gay Palestinian who has been hiding in Tel Aviv for the past 8 years; Abdu, 24 years old, who was exposed as gay in Ramallah and then accused of espionage; Faris, 23 years old, who escaped to Tel Aviv from the West Bank after his family tried to kill him.

Their only chance for survival -- to seek asylum outside Israel and Palestine and leave their homelands forever behind.

Purchase tickets here at Hold My Ticket. View the trailer here.

Shown with:

A light-hearted short about social change.
Selected from films made in 48 Hours in three cities in Israel.
