'A JIHAD FOR LOVE' opens in Istanbul

More than 400 people packed the Beyoglu theater yesterday in a SOLD OUT screening of 'A Jihad for Love'. It was an intense and diverse audience with a spectrum of views. An intense Q and A followed with Muhs, Mazen, Ferda, Kiymet and myself. My wonderful co-director of Cinematography Berke Bas and producer Sandi DuBowski joined us as well.
The second screening is in two hours. Turkey's two largest newspapers 'HURIYET' and 'SABAH' have done full page stories on the film and here they are:
Bu cihat aşk için - Hürriyet (This Jihad is For Love)

Önce Müslümanız sonra eşcinsel

And for some bizzare reason a Turkish website insists that Al-Qaeda is looking for me!
