Event – Documentary Screening

The Religious Studies Department is holding an event on the evening of Tuesday, September 6, from 6:00-9:00, in the KBR (on the HSU campus, below the clock tower).

We’ll be screening the feature documentary Oriented, a film about three gay Palestinian men living in Tel Aviv. The film will address questions of gender, sexuality, queer politics, religion, and nationality, among other things, and the discussion to follow the film should be a lively one.

This event is free and open to the public, and is being offered to correspond with, and in support of, Humboldt Pride Week.
