Movie Trailer:"The Invisible Men" persecuted gay Palestinians who have run away from their families and are now hiding illegally in Tel Aviv



DIRECTED BY YARIV MOZER (2012) -

The Invisible Men” portrays the untold story of persecuted gay Palestinians who have run away from their families and are now hiding illegally in Tel Aviv. Louie, 32 years old, has been hiding in Tel Aviv for the past 8 years. Abdu, 24, was exposed as gay in Ramallah and then accused of espionage and tortured by Palestinian security forces; Faris, 23 years old, 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 behind forever.  These men are the heroes of the film.  The movie describes the challenges and hardships they face, the painful choices that confront them, and the courageous Israelis who work to help them.  The movie shines a critical light on Israeli policies that need to be changed.

  1. i have not seen the the invisible men, but just wondering if there is a consensus as to the status of lgbtiqa refugees of persian, as well as syrian-jewish heritage somewhere in canada {irqr.ca}: whether they will be able to return to iran and israel, respectively.

    a recognized queer homeland within formerly homophobic regime borders is an effort worth endeavoring for visa vis gay guardianship {-}
