Parvez Sharma

Dutch premiere

Daring documentary about Muslims from different parts of the world, who are struggling with the combination of their religion and sexual identity. A Jihad for Love is probably the first-ever full-length documentary that comprehensively deals with Islam’s relationship with homosexuality. Muslim gay filmmaker Parvez Sharma has gone where the silence is loudest. During a period of six years, Sharma traveled all over the world to record stories of gay Muslims. Such as the narrative of the openly homosexual imam Hendricks from South Africa, and the experiences of Mazen who has been imprisoned for two years because of his homosexuality. Showing intimate portraits, the title of the film does not refer to an armed, holy war, but to an intern religious struggle.Filming the struggle between religion and sexual disposition in twelve different countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and Bangladesh, Sharma uncovers one of Islam’s biggest taboos.
