SYNOPSIS:

Q&A with Producer Ekin Calisir

Mr. Gay Syria follows two gay Syrian refugees who are trying to rebuild their lives. Husein is a barber in Istanbul living a double life between his conservative family and his gay identity. Mahmoud is the founder of Syria’s LGBTI movement and is a refugee in Berlin. What brings them together is a dream: to participate in an international beauty contest as an escape from their trapped lives and as an
answer to their invisibility. Will the dream come true or will the refugee crisis and the harsh consequences of being gay in the Muslim world shatter it to pieces?

Ayse Toprak is a filmmaker based in Istanbul. She is fascinated in people who are pushed to the peripheries of society who have personal, vivid, compelling stories to tell. Her conviction in filmmaking comes from her wish to tell the stories of such people who she feels have different ways of looking at the world, each unique in their own ways.

Ekin is a documentary film producer with a background in journalism. She worked at Al Jazeera Turk as producer of short documentaries. From 2008 to 2011, she covered international news as producer
of Pusula news documentary program. Her documentary mini series, NEVER GIVE UP, was aired on TRT Documentary in 2015.
