This humorous and sensitive documentary follows one man’s struggle for acceptance in the face of seemingly impossible odds. Saar Moaz, an HIV-positive gay man, dares to face his homophobic Orthodox family that 20 years earlier banished him from the kibbutz. Now living in London Moaz has dealt with his devastating diagnosis of HIV by joining the London Gay Men’s Chorus. But even with the uplifting and energetic music, is found family enough? Will Maoz ever stop wanting his Israeli Orthodox family’s approval? The Heymann brothers have given us access to this intensely personal portrait of a life split between two very different worlds, and a never-ending journey to find love in all its forms.
Join us for a dessert reception following the movie.
