Created by director and producer Jake Witzenfeld, Oriented is a documentary film capturing the complicated lives of three gay Palestinians living in Tel Aviv-Jaffa. The film closely follows the protagonist’s lives, portraying the complexities surrounding their sexual and political identities.
With the intent of taking hold of their futures, the friends form an advocacy group for sexual and nation equality, as war looms overhead. One of the most intimate portrayals on the topic to date, Oriented gives a glimpse into the cross section of hope and reality.
Oriented has been screened in over 100 international film festivals, Universities, and LGBT/Arab/Jewish organizations, and the film was recently awarded “Best Documentary Film” by the Chicago Palestine Film Festival and OneWorld Romania.
