Tel Aviv Nights

For the third installment of his Nights series profiling LGBTQ nightlife around the world, director Samuel Douek serves up an intimate portrait of Tel Aviv’s queer underground.

The short film gives a taste of the dance floor hedonism seen in LA Nights and London Nights, but Douek also goes deeper, exploring the Israeli city’s unique mix of cultures and even the commercial exploitation of queer communities:

“The queer scene in this Middle Eastern city is the one of the few landscapes where Arabs and Israelis mix harmoniously. But was it always this way? Confronting Tel Aviv's reputation for being one of the most welcoming gay cities in the world, I talked to veteran gay clubber Doron about growing up gay and queer exploitation.”
