DocAviv Festival Spotlights Gay Issues
Crossposted from Haaretz
Documentaries about gay Palestinians hiding in Tel Aviv and a facility for men who have abused family members are among the 12 films that will contend in the Israel competition of the Docaviv International Documentary Film Festival in May.
The 14th annual festival, which will take place May 3 to 12 in Tel Aviv’s Cinemateque, will focus on political conflicts and gay issues. More than 80 films will be screened, and there will also be discussion panels, special events, artists’ master classes and workshops.
The Israeli contestants, chosen from over 70 entries, include Yariv Mozer’s “The Invisible Men,” which follows a gay Palestinian couple hiding in Tel Aviv after being persecuted and threatened in the West Bank.
