After months of work, partly in Morocco, the documentary I am Gay and Muslim premiers during the Roze Filmdagen 2012 (Amsterdam Gay & Lesbian Film Festival 2012). A documentary that focuses on the subject of gay rights in the Islamic world.
I am very proud of Chris Belloni, the maker of this project, for creating such a special film on such a delicate subject. And it is really nice to see the footage, which came for a big part from my hands, in 2K digital projection. I got blown away by the quality of today’s digital HD camera’s, as shown in the final version on the big screen. Even footage shot on small consumer camera’s, like the Sony NEX series, still stand out.
See Chris speak about the film and upcoming premiere at the Roze Filmdagen (in dutch), here:

The film is to be seen in Amsterdam till the end of march and will be shown at various international film festivals, for now.
