Synopsis:

The Wedding centers Rami (Sam Abbas), a young Muslim man, who is preparing for his wedding with Sara (Nikohl Boosheri). In secret Rami goes against the taboos of sexuality within Muslim culture to explore his own sexuality. Almost all Muslims growing up are taught that Islam does not tolerate homosexuality and that it is highly disgraced. The film demonstrates how cultural and religious upbringings impact relationships. This, uniquely shot, observational film is intimately-voyeuristic and the perfect portrait of repression and alienation. Shot on location in New York City, Abbas filmed the entire film on a 16mm lens. Abbas’ sound design is heavily layered featuring many snippets of conversations from unseen passersby.
