Still thinking of this beautiful film ‘Bashtaalak sa’at’ ‘Shall I compare you to a summers day’ from Outburst Arts Festival. A queer, Arab love story about a group of men trying to navigate a polyamorous relationship. Beautiful, funny & touching.
I think about how important those representations of the wide variety of ways people can love and configure relationships that are not often accounted for in mainstream TV and film. How do you develop a positive sense of self if you don’t see yourself (your race, your gender, your relationship style etc) reflected in society.
If you get a chance to see this film, I really recommend it.
