Director Mike Mosallam brings gay Muslim romance to the screen in ‘Breaking Fast’

In a time when images of happy, healthy queer couples continue to increase in number in films and TV, Mike Mossallam aims to bring the subversiveness back to gay romance. The out-gay, Muslim filmmaker has just completed his first feature: Breaking Fast. It premieres at OutFest Fusion March 8 before hitting the festival circuit. The film is currently seeking distribution.

Written & Directed by Mosallam, the film is produced by Sarah Bazzi, Bay Dariz, Seth Hauer and Alex Lampsos.
