Ayse Toprak | Germany, France, Turkey | 2017 | Unclassified 15+

Mr Gay Syria follows two gay Syrian men: Husein, a barber and refugee in Istanbul, and Mahmoud, who lives in Berlin working part time at a NGO helping gay asylum seekers. What brings them together is a crazy dream: to join the international beauty contest, Mr. Gay World, as an escape from their trapped lives and an answer to their invisibility. The beauty contest becomes a thread that weaves together the difficulties of being gay in homophobic societies, the challenges of coming out, the joy of falling in love and the devastating migration crisis.

Ayse Toprak is a guest of the festival and will take part in a Q&A after the screening.
