Description

It's Ahmad and Steve, not Adam and Eve! Something that is haram is forbidden in Islam. This short film explores themes of faith, sexuality, addiction and human connection. Fusing live action and Chinese pole (an acrobatic circus discipline), it tells the story of two queer men and the social and personal barriers they desire to overcome. Filmed during lockdown, it is a first glimpse of a live show currently in the making by one of Scotland's up-and-coming circus creators.
