A gay muslim in TOKIO


This is another planet, honestly.
Many national obsessions and I will write more soon.
The film has been overwhelmingly well received by 250 Japanese and expats two nights ago at a multi storeyed downtown Tokio theater in Shinjuku.
Some responses have come in...

Dear Mr. Sharma,
I'm Masaki Urakawa, and I am the one who asked you a question about being a muslim yesterday in the film festival
Thanks again for your great film.
That expanded my view about being a gay in the world.
Also, I was amazed by your very clear answer to me about being a muslim.
Though it might be impossible for me as a Japanese to perfectly sympathize those muslim gays but your answer greatly helped me to understand how their struggles were taugh.
I would love to access your blogspot and watch the discussion there.
Sincerely,
Masaki URAKAWA

Thank you very much for the great film. My name is AG and I talked with you with my partner, who is the officially first come out gay minister in the Japanese protestant churches.
For most Japanese people, traditional religion doesn't make the core of his soul, though there are actually many christians who have the same spiritual struggle that you described in the film. I and my partner Aika felt very familiar with the people in your film.

Sincerely,
AG

September 2007 is when I started (with a finished film, my first) and now some 49 countries and 8 million people later, the whole world is talking. The movement around this work has begun worldwide. We will be screening next year around the world and yes in Muslim countries as well.
