Outside/In
by Suzy Salamy 

Suzy Salamy is a social worker and a filmmaker. She has an extensive history working in the television and film world, and has  worked on several award winning documentaries about the Middle East

How can people reconcile a profound love for their culture with societal prohibitions that do not recognize the nuances of who they are? Can LGBTQ rights be divorced from politics or treated in isolation from other human rights? These are some of the questions that are explored in Outside/In, a short documentary. The film follows three Lebanese Queer activists who struggle to merge their personal and political beliefs through their activist efforts while maintaining their own identities.

Synopsis 
Mondial 2010 is a film on love and place. A Lebanese gay couple decides to take a road trip to Ramallah. The film is recorded with their camera as they chronicle their journey. The viewers are invited through the couple’s conversations into the universe of a fading city.

Note:
The relations between Israelis and Lebanese are governed by the 1943 Lebanese Criminal Code and the 1955 Lebanese Anti-Israeli Boycott Law, the former of which forbids any interaction with nationals of enemy states, and the latter of which specifies Israelis, making a trip for a Lebanese citizen to Israel (or Palestinian territories) impossible.

Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth
By Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Artist, Performer, Curator

This multimedia series comprised of textile work, performance and video attempt to create a future landscape of a fictitious queer rebellion.  This revolution is seen through the eyes of a queer Muslim world intent on overthrowing the shackles of Western Imperialism. It seeks to challenge the shifting borders between terrorist and freedom fighter as seen and named by a dominant social structure. 

The series takes from the historical stock footage, following on from the idea that in order to envision a future one must continue to look at the past. These archival video clips come are spliced together alongside narrative, digital photo, and video collage and poetry to build the first inklings of a new world order.
