The documentary, “Oriented” directed and produced by Jake Witzenfeld, follows the lives of three gay Palestinian friends confronting their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The documentary follows the lives of Khader Abu Seif and his friends, Fadi and Naim. All three are gay Palestinian citizens of Israel who live and work in Tel Aviv. They are politically active and assertive about their right to define their own complex identity — and they’re not at all interested in conforming to the expectations of others.
