Oz

So far from the reest of the world. A nation where the politics of race and the guilt of colonialism are being played out, with many wounds not yet healed. But here in Oz, the response to this film has been terrific. We have a third screening tonight at the Dendy in Newtown at 9 pm-this after last week when two parallel screenings had to be organized to fit the overflowing crowd of 680 people. More updates to follow. In the meantime please see some recent press, by clicking on the links below.

Saw the movie on the last screening at Newtown and was moved beyond words. I hope the movie reaches a much wider audience and is able to educate people on the issue. Thanks for the most honest movie I have ever seen!!

By watching Jihad for love today i realized many things: how difficult it can be for muslim people in their contries to admit that they are homosexual or even come out with it. Because their problem is not only about finding a balance in their souls with their sexual orientation. They need to find the balance with their religion as well, their love to god. And that in their societies is their orientation question of life or death. I just would like to support with my message all these people. There is nothing to feel guilty about, god made you, god loves you how you are, you and your feelings are creation of god.
