Starring Michael Aloni – Nicholas Jacob – Jamil Khoury – Alon Pdut

Nimer, a Palestinian student, is dreaming of a better life abroad. One fateful night he meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer, and the two fall in love. As their relationship deepens, Nimer is confronted with the harsh realities of a Palestinian society that refuses to accept him for his sexual identity, and an Israeli society that rejects him for his nationality. When his close friend is caught hiding illegally in Tel Aviv and sent back to the West Bank, where he is brutally murdered, Nimer must choose between the life he thought he wanted and his love for Roy.

This is my film of movie stills from the film “Out in the Dark”.


Andrew Reach’s Art Installation at the 2013 Cleveland Ingenuityfest – Sept. 20 – 22, 2013

My life partner Andrew Reach was selected to exhibit his art at this years Cleveland Ingenuityfest for his innovative digital art.

Ingenuity’s mission is to ignite the creative spark where the arts, science, and technology intersect.

2013 Cleveland Ingenuityfest - Andrew Reach art Installation

Andrew says about the work above:

My architectural background comes into the work “Seven Model Citizens”.  Within a vocabulary of symbols suggestive of computer code, seven anthropomorphic architectonic constructions are lined up, at once symbolizing individuality and rigid conformity. The blocky formed monoliths conform to a grid where they must reside, yet, each is still unique. The antenna appendage on their heads represents the untethered power we now possess to be connected with smart phones and Wi-Fi.

Andrew says about the work above:

The work “Three Comma One” represent my left brain and right brain, on a collision course with each other. Grids and symbols, numbers and letters alluding to architectural and engineering drawings (from my left brain) coexist with colorful geometric abstraction (from my right brain).



(left to right): Reformabit 1 & Reformabit 2

Andrew says about the work above:

The word Reformabit is latin to transform or reshape. The works “Reformabit 1” and “Reformabit 2” are  studies of relationships of geometric parts all working in harmony to make a dynamic system and suggest a vocabulary of abstracted engineering drawings. These constructions are also about energy and movement. Again, these works represent a meeting of the two sides of my brain, a balancing act of engineering and creativity.
