Comox United Church and the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship will present the National Film Board film Solo on Friday, September 19, 2014 at 7 pm.
This documentary is a personal investigation by filmmaker Atif Siddiqi into his own sexual identity and his search for an intimate relationship. The camera follows Atif as he interviews his own family members, recalls childhood experiences in conservative Pakistan, talks to his therapist and friends, and encounters others in the Montreal gay community.
The film shows how beliefs acquired in childhood influence our adult lives, and may keep us from trusting ourselves and others.
The presentation will be at 7 p.m. Friday, September 19, at Comox United Church, 250 Beach Drive in Comox. There will be a small group discussion after the film for those who wish to stay and to discuss the film’s themes. Admission is by donation.
