The Chosen Haram26 Mar — 26 Apr
One year after its debut at Jacksons Lane was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Chosen Haram, a contemporary circus film by Sadiq Ali is now available online for one month. Watch it now below.
The Chosen Haram is an artistic short film which uses circus to tell the story of two gay men and their meeting through a dating app. One is bound by the teachings of Islam while the other lives a life of excess. When these two meet, they begin to draw the best out of each other. How does it look when two men from completely different worlds collide and what happens? Can they find a pathway through their own limitations to find peace with each other?
The Chosen Haram was originally part of And What? Queer Arts Festival.
