Out in the Dark, directed by Michael Mayer, tells the story of two men caught in an impossible love story.
Nimr is a Palestinian student. Roy is an Israeli lawyer. They hook up. Seems like a pretty straightforward boy-meets-boy story.
But when you are crossing the Palestinian-Israeli divide, nothing is that easy.
Filmmaker Elle Flanders sat down with Mayer and Nicholas Jacob, who plays Nimr, when they were in Toronto in September for the Toronto International Film Festival.
In the video interview below, Flanders and Mayer talk about Out in the Dark, pinkwashing and the role of film.
Out in the Dark screens at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival on April 18.
