A Jihad for Love – currently playing at IFC Center

Posted May 22nd, 2008 by ingrid

Sandi DuBowski, the producer of A Jihad for Love and Director of Trembling Before G-d, is one of those people who knows a lot of people. And he knows a lot of people because he is awesome – generous and inspiring – so I am jumping in and spreading the word about the film. I haven’t seen it yet but I have been following its progress for a long time and will definitely be going to support the opening weekend. Directed by Parvez Sharma, and filmed over 5 years in 12 countries and 9 languages, A Jihad for Love investigates the stories of gay and lesbian Muslims all over the world.

A strong outreach element includes the following events at the IFC Center:

Fri, May 23rd, 7 pm – Dialogue with Progresive Muslims Meet Up Group
Satur, May 24th – Human Rights Day
Tues, May 27th, 7 pm – Interfaith dialogue
Wednes, May 28th, 7 pm – Forum on HIV/AIDS and Islam
Thurs, May 29th, 7 pm – Forum on South Asian/Diaspora/Gender/Immigration issues
