Gizmo Films – ‘A Queer Country’ gets into Tel Aviv Festival

Award winning documentary ‘A Queer Country’ has bagged itself a place at this years Tel Aviv festival.

‘A Queer Country’ explores the development of Israel’s buzzing LGBT community in Tel Aviv – recently crowned the gay capital of the world – and how this challenges the country’s unique legal structure and society based on Orthodox Judaism. It examines the hold of Orthodoxy over family law and how this affects Israel’s citizens when it comes to achieving equal rights in their private lives.

The filmmakers, Lisa Morgenthau and Harriet Davies explore this through a personal level, by interviewing many influential figures living within Tel Aviv and beyond. The documentary is now award winning, last year the film won an award in the 2016 Hollywood International Independent Documentary Awards with Lisa Morgenthau receiving the Women Filmmaker’s award. The film was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature. You can purchase your tickets to this years Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival here: For further updates follow their official Twitter:
