HOW I LOVE YOU

by Akram ZAATARI
2001 / Mini DV / color / sound / 1S / 29' 00

It is an exploration of sexuality among gay men in Lebanon. A couple and three characters talk about their sex life, about commitments and failures, about their relationships to their bodies, about their passions and love in a society where homosexuality is still punished with imprisonment. The video uses light to produce a white veil that osbtructs seeing, hence rendering character identification almost impossible. Through this obstruction, this video locates itself within specific social context: in time and location, where certain rights are not granted.
