AFMI Night at Cinequest: Breaking Fast w. Director Mike Mosallam in person!
Join us for the world premiere of Breaking Fast – Director Mike Mosallam will appear in person for a post screening Q&A!
Breaking Fast has been named one of the best 15 films to watch at Cinequest 2020! We are big fans of Mike’s first feature film. We showcased the eponymous short film at our inaugural Pride screening in 2017 to the audience’s delight. And we’ve been waiting for the feature ever since then.
A successful, gay Muslim living in West Hollywood, Mo is comfortable with his faith and sexuality and is learning how to navigate life post-heartbreak. Enter Kal – a sweet American guy who surprises Mo by offering to break fast with him during Ramadan. This chance meeting could it be the start of something better? Inshallah! Enjoy their sweet journey as they learn more about each other, likenesses and differences, as Mo tries to resolve relationships with friends, family, and this potential new love. A refreshing, delightful romantic comedy for the new age where the protagonist is in complete harmony with all parts of himself. – Warren Beer
