From Academy Award-winning Australian filmmaker Eva Orner (Chasing Asylum) comes Out of Iraq, a moving account of the resilience and strength of love in the face of life-threatening situations. In 2003 Iraqis Nayyef, a translator for the US army meets and falls in love with Btoo, a soldier. Facing persecution and possible death, Nayyef obtains a visa for the US and flees, leaving behind his true love. Settling in Seattle he befriends an American who fights bureaucracy and prejudice to reunite them. An emotionally powerful and vital film that exposes the threat that gay men face in Iraq and other countries where being homosexual can result in being killed.
