Film Synopsis:

Israeli filmmakers Tomer & Barak Heymann dig deep into the themes of manhood, religion, family and sex in this documentary about Saar Maoz, an HIV-positive gay man who is torn between his “out” life as a member of the London Gay Men’s Chorus and his desire to reconnect with his Jewish Orthodox family in Israel. The film captures the journey of a man striving to maintain his true self as he navigates two very different worlds.

Admission is free. A Wider Lens is a project of A Wider Bridge, the Consulate General of Israel and the EBIJFF.
