The directorial debut from Michael Mayer stars newcomer Nicholas Jacob as Arab student Nimr alongside Michael Aloni (Policeman, Infiltration) who plays Jewish lawyer Roy. A gripping story of forbidden Arab-Israeli love sees Nimr rejected by Islamic society for his sexuality and outcast by Jewish society for his nationality.
Sam Dick, head of policy at Stonewall, said: “Out in the Dark highlights the difficulties facing gay couples living in cross-cultural relationships. It provides a fantastic opportunity for us to debate the issues facing lesbian gay and bisexual people globally and how we in Britain can help them secure gay equality in their own countries and communities.”
Out In The Dark opens in UK cinemas on 5 July 2013
