In 1985, there were three openly gay people in Israel. By 1998, there were 3,000. Filmmaker Yair Qedar, who initially documented this dramatic revolution for the newspaper The Pink Times, energetically combines archival materials and personal stories of those who pushed for change, to chronicle this largely untold story. Prominent among those interviewed is TJFF favourite Eytan Fox, whose films Gotta Have Heart, Yossi & Jagger and The Bubble and TV programme Florentine—which all previously played at our Festival—are contextualized within the dramatic events that are told in this wonderful film.
