Who's Gonna Love Me Now? 2016 15

85 mins United Kingdom Director. Barak Heymann, Tomer Heymann

Saar is an Israeli living in London, driven away from his Kibbutz by his family’s response to his homosexuality and HIV-positive status, but also by his own fear of rejection. The lure of home and family is deep-rooted, however, and although he’s made a new life for himself within the close-knit, loving community of London Gay Men’s Chorus, he yearns for acceptance from his parents and siblings, in particular his stern father.

Following Saar in the UK and his Israeli-based family over many years, the Heymann Brothers skilfully construct an intimate and nuanced portrait of a man growing up and coming to terms both with himself and his family, just as they do him. It’s a tender but affirmative exploration of the LGBT migrant experience and an assertion that minds and attitudes only change through communication.
