The film will be followed by a Q&A with bar owner, gay activist and city councillor for Jerusalem Sa'ar Netanel from City of Borders.
Shushan, the only gay bar in Jerusalem, closed its doors in 2007. City of Borders follows five patrons of the bar who, despite different nationalities and differing religious convictions, form a close-knit group and fight together to gain acceptance. Sa'ar Netanel, the owner of Shushan, was the first openly gay man to hold a seat in the Jerusalem city council. In the course of his work, he encountered fierce opposition from the religious community and received many death threats.
