On 16th May, the documentary film “Global Gay” will be shown at the library of the Goethe – Institute, followed by a debate with Frédéric Martel, co-director of the film, and Alexandre Marcel, President of IDAHO’s French Committee. This film is a contemporary saga that chronicles the worldwide battle for the decriminalization of homosexuality through the lives and work of some of its pioneers. The film follows the suspenseful ups and downs of the diplomatic process intertwined with the more intimate stories of its main characters as they try to forward their cause and force a UN resolution.
Rémi Lainé started as a news reporter and independent journalist before turning to documentary film. For the past fifteen years, he has created many documentaries reflecting pressing social problems. He also works as a photographer. The co-director Frédéric Martel is a writer, researcher, and journalist. For his latest book “Global Gay”, which was published in February 2014, he traveled to over thirty countries to accumulate eyewitness accounts and investigate the condition of gays across the world, gaining a unique overview of the issue.
