Halal Love (and Sex)

Assad Fouladkar | 94min | Tyskland, Libanon

  • Svensk Premiär

Färgstarkt om sex, feminism och religion i en sprakande ensemblekomedi om muslimska kvinnor som försöker få ordning på sina kärleksliv.

Hur kommer egentligen ett barn till världen? I ett klassrummet i Beirut undervisar den strikta lärarinnan om hur maskar som kallas "Alaka" går från mannen till kvinnan på natten. Halal Love (and Sex) lär oss både det ena och det andra om sexlivets omvägar när sharialagar gäller. En kvinna vill att maken skall skaffa en andra hustru eftersom hon är trött på att ha sex varje kväll. En annan är skild och en tredje är nygift men grälar hela tiden med sin man. Detta är en färgrik och högljudd skildring av islam och de troendes sätt att kringgå religionens regler när det passar. Dessutom är filmen en kärleksfull hyllning till staden Beirut.

Assad Fouladkar

Regissör: Assad Fouladkar

Assad Fouladkar was born in Lebanon in 1961, studied filmmaking at Boston University in the US, and lived for a few years in Australia before returning to Lebanon, where he teaches film at the Lebanese American University in Beirut.
His thesis short film [God Have Mercy] [Kyrie-Eleison] won 13 international awards and was a finalist at the Oscar competition for Best student film. In Lebanon, Assad presented a weekly radio program on cinema and wrote critiques in a national daily newspaper, in addition to directing some corporate videos and two television series before he shot his first feature film [When Maryam Spoke Out] that won major film awards in the Arab world, Europe and the United States. The film was Lebanon’s official entry to the academy awards.

September 11 changed the world and disturbed the west’s consciousness by revealing to them a great new threat: Islam. This threat had already appeared during the Islamic revolution in Iran. today, it emerges as the greatest enemy of the west, and its repercussions are ever-increasing. political discord with Islamic countries and individual groups has prevented the west to view muslims in other capacities but potential terrorists as for me, I grew up in Lebanon. I left my country during the great conflicts between the west and Islam. Since then I have felt the inspiration to share the stories I have seen, or heard during my childhood. these are stories that are far from the clichéd stories of terrorists, weapons, Islamic Jihad, and hate. These stories revolve around a single subject: how to experience love, and how to manage emotions and desire.
