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. 

There's Khader, a nightlife "darling" who lives with his Jewish boyfriend David and their dalmatian Otis; Fadi, an ardent Palestinian nationalist who finds himself falling in love with an Israeli soldier; Naeem, who must gather the courage to come out to his conservative family from a small northern village. Determined to change their reality, the three friends form a non-violent, cultural resistance group called "Qambuta" (Cauliflower) to advocate for sexual and national equality. Meanwhile, a war is brewing.

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. 

Oriented is a first release for CONCH Studios. The global rights for Orientedare being represented by PICTURED, a new NY-based distribution company. 
Oriented launched with its world premiere at the Sheffield Doc Festival (UK) and its international premiere at the LA Film Festival (US) in June 2015. Since, the film has opened in New York, London, San Fransisco, Melbourne, Singapore, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stockholm and Islamabad among others. Most recently, the film was screened at the Torino Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the Chicago Palestine Film Festival and OneWorld Romania where it was awarded "Best Documentary Film."
