Following a year-long pre-release "engagement tour" of more than 150 film festivals, event-led and community screenings across five continents,Oriented has hit the digital space this summer with iTunes, and now a worldwide release exclusive with Netflix.
Described as a "uniquely Middle Eastern spin on a classic coming-of-age tale" by Variety magazine, and coined as a "refreshingly candid and revelatory documentary" by Dazed & Confusedmagazine, Oriented follows the lives of three Palestinian friends exploring their national and sexual identity in contemporary Tel-Aviv.
Oriented is the debut film by British film director and producer Jake Witzenfeld, who spent the past three years living in Tel Aviv filming the everyday lives, conversations and realities of the characters in the film. Through excursions beyond Tel Aviv to Amman, Jordan and Berlin, Germany, Witzenfeld's camera captures the complexity of Khader, Fadi and Naeem's perspective, both at home and abroad.
