CHECHNYA.png
 

MARCH 2019

Director: Matt White
Writer: Isaac Mulè
Movement Choreographed by: Jeff Fox

This fast paced feature length production follows two couples over the span of 36 hours, as they plan to escape from Chechnya where LGBTQ people are disappearing. Where the Government encourages families to perform honour killings, and sacrifices.  

The couples have heard that in 2017 the Canadian Government welcomed 31 refugees from Chechnya. In an attempt to escape the gay-purge, Sofia, Daryia, Alexei, and Ivan begin gathering supplies, money, and whatever they can. Unable to rely on the UN or other foreign aid, they make contact with someone who says they can help. But on the night of their planned escape one of the partners goes missing. Were they arrested? Will they come back in time? Should they leave without them? Did they turn the others in? How reliable is their contact?
