Gay Girl in Damascus, A: The Amina Profile
directed by Sophie Deraspe
As the Arab Spring explodes, Syrian secret police kidnap Syrian-American Amina Arraf, a lesbian civil rights activist and blogger known as “A Gay Girl in Damascus.” Fearful for her online girlfriend, Montrealer Sandra Bagaria desperately searches for her. But reality is not what it seems, and Sandra gets caught in a spellbinding chase for the truth as haunting secrets are revealed. Journalists and activists join the investigation, which evolves into a fantastical thriller about the nature of desire, the media’s quest for the next hot story, and the rabbit hole of digital relationships. Winner of the Special Jury Prize (Canadian Feature Documentary) at the 2015 Hot Docs and the Documentary Jury’s Honorable Mention at Frameline 2015.
