Just when you think you’ve heard about every aspect of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a new angle pops up to surprise you.
For most audiences, that’ll be the effect of Yariv Mozer’s new documentary, “The Invisible Men,” which details the struggles of gay Palestinians living in hiding in Israel. Ostracized by their communities, and often by their own families, many face lynching if they return home.
Making their situation even more precarious is that they‘re also not supposed to be in Israel. Security measures prevent Palestinians from entering the country — even those seeking asylum. Furthermore, there’s the very real possibility they’ll be discovered by a family member living inside Israel, another threat to their safety.
