Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? (15)

+ Special Live Broadcast With The London Gay Men’s Chorus Plus Q&A Hosted By Julian Clary

Dir. Tomer & Barak Heymann
Israel/UK, 86 mins, 2016
Hebrew and English language

Hosted by Julian Clary, a special Q&A screening of Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? and performance by the London Gay Men’s Chorus will stream live via satellite from the Barbican, London.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival, this is the latest offering from acclaimed Israeli filmmaking duo Tomer and Barak Heymann and is a tender insight into the life of a gay Jewish man and his reconciliation with the family who once rejected him

At the age of 21, Saar Maoz is kicked out of his Kibbutz for not being ‘religious’.
Cutting all ties with his family, Saar flees to London and embraces the freedoms of London life in the 90s. Then one day the highs of his new found freedom come crashing down around him. With no family of his own, Saar seeks solace in the arms of the London Gay Men’s Chorus. Suddenly life has a new meaning.

After 17 years Saar reaches out to his conservative Israeli family in an attempt to reconcile. Now after years of separation his parents are coming to visit…

Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? celebrates the triumph of love over hate, of understanding over ignorance and the melding of cultures that traditionally view each other as extreme. This isn’t Saar Moaz’s singular journey, it is a monumental trek undertaken by his entire family and a poignant life story that echoes far and wide.

Live Satellite Event

This screening takes place as part of a national satellite event. The film will be introduced by Julian Clary who will host a post-screening Q&A with the filmmakers and Saar Maoz. There will be a special performance from the London Gay Men’s Chorus to conclude the satellite event.
