BEIRUT DREAM IN COLOR
by Michael Collins, Lebanon, USA 2021, 28'
Award-winning director Michael Collins brings us the timely story of a trailblazing rock band, a courageous fan, and a queer activist’s daunting battle for equality against religious extremists in some of the most hardline places in the world. BEIRUT DREAMS IN COLOR is, simultaneously, a rare and nuanced look into the LGBTQ politics of the Middle East and a moving testament to the power of music and the universal desire for freedom.
