The Invisible Men, documentary by Yariv Mozer
Israel/Holland, 2012, 60 minutes
The movie tells the untold story of 3 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 – to seek asylum outside Israel and Palestine and leave their homelands forever behind.
