Q&A with Director Malachi Leopold (skype) follows films

The story of a gay American Peace Corp volunteer who moved to Iran in 1968 and fell in love with an Iranian man. Ten years on and just prior to the revolution igniting, the American was forced to leave Iran, and his partner. The couple was reunited after 35 years in May of 2012 in Turkey. Their reuniting takes an unexpected turn in Istanbul, now they face their biggest challenge. (Malachi Leopold, 2014, USA, 84 mins)

BEING STAVROS

Stavros is looking for love. In a bid to find it he makes an unusual move - entering the ‘Mr. Gay UK’ beauty pageant, a showcase for some of Britain’s hottest men. Only problem is, at 30 stone (420 pounds), Stavros weighs 3 times as much as his competitors. Undeterred he signs up, but things don’t go to plan - for Stavros or the pageant organizers! (Jonothan McLeod, 2013, UK, 10 mins.)
