Film: Who Will Love Me Now?

The Documentary follows Saar who arrived in the UK at twenty-one after having been kicked out of his religious Kibbutz in Israel for being gay. Following the highs and lows that accompanied his newfound freedom, Saar discovered an alternative family with The London Gay Men’s Chorus, and he also found out that he is HIV positive. After nineteen years spent in the UK, he decides to reach out to his conservative Israeli family in an attempt at reconciliation. Now his parents are coming to visit…
WHO’S GONNA LOVE ME NOW? celebrates the triumph of love over hate, of understanding over ignorance and the melding of cultures who traditionally view each other as extreme. To book tickets, see the contact details below.
