Synopsis

Too gay for the village, too Palestinian for the city, too Israeli for the Middle East and too comfortable for the interest of the international media... Oriented follows the lives of three gay Palestinian-Israeli citizens living it up in Tel Aviv as they confront their national and sexual identity in the build up to the Israeli-Gaza conflict of 2014. Oriented follows the lives of three Palestinian friends exploring their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv during the Israel-Gaza conflict of 2014. Khader is a Tel Aviv 'darling' from a prominent Muslim family living with his Jewish boyfriend, David, a local LGBT nightlife impresario, and their Dalmatian, Otis. Khader is conflicted by his desire for change in the face of a seemingly hopeless situation. Fadi is an ardent Palestinian nationalist confronted by guilt-ridden Jewish love and Naeem must confront his family with the truth about his sexuality. Meanwhile, a war is brewing...Determined to make a change, these three best friends form a non-violent, cultural resistance group (- Qambuta- ) making viral content for gender and national equality. While their work may not change the world, it certainly helps them deal with the frustration of living with multi-faceted identities.
