Director Michael Mayer’s debut feature film, Out in the Dark, opens today in select theaters across the nation. After premiering at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, Out in the Dark quickly became a favorite on the festival circuit, receiving seven Audience Awards for Best Picture and a number of additional awards. The film tells the story of Nimr, and ambitious Palestinian student in the West Bank, and Roy, an Israeli lawyer, who meet one night in Tel Aviv and work to overcome the harsh realities of homophobic Palestinian society as a romance between the two men begins to blossom.
