How far would you go to be with the love of your life? The new World of Wonder-produced documentary Out of Iraq tells the story of two men who found love in war-torn Iraq. See the movie at LA Film Festival (get tickets now) or you can watch on Logo in June.
How far would you go to be with the love of your life? In 2003 in the midst of war, in a country where homosexuality is banned, two Iraqi men meet by chance and fall in love. Nayyef, a translator for the U.S. military, and Btoo, a soldier in the Iraqi army, face persecution—and possibly death—if they stay in their homeland. After obtaining a visa, Nayyef leaves his love behind, settling in Seattle with a determination to one day reunite with Btoo in a place where they can express their love freely and without fear.
Directors Eva Orner and Chris McKim tell the story of this audacious journey of love, sacrifice and courage with a heartwarming and energetic style.
