A heartrending portrait of persecution and discrimination, this documentary profiles imperiled gay Palestinians who flee to Israel in hopes of one day freely expressing their sexual and national identity.
And incredible, riveting, emotional documentary, The Invisible Men tells the untold story of persecuted gay Palestinians who have run away from their families and are now hiding illegally in Tel Aviv. Their stories are told through the film's heroes: Louie, 32 years old, a gay Palestinian who has been hiding in Tel Aviv for the past 8 years; Abdu, 24 years old, who was exposed as gay in Ramallah and then accused of espionage and tortured by Palestinian security forces; Faris, 23 years old, who escaped to Tel Aviv from the West Bank after his family tried to kill him. Their only chance for survival and an open life is to seek asylum outside Israel and Palestine and leave their homelands forever behind. Winner of the 2012 Frameline Award for Outstanding Documentary Feature. (Hebrew, English, Arabic with English subtitles) -- Tyler Pirner
