Cinema Q: Rainbow's End

Cinema Q: Rainbow's End

75 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Documentary, Foreign, GLBT

With the advent of same sex marriage, homosexuals have achieved near-equality in much of Europe. Everything seems rosy, so why should they keep on fighting? Rainbow's End is a revealing and entertaining multinational journey from the center to the borders of Europe. From parades and protests in Warsaw and Krakow to touching personal stories with social, religious and political insights, the film moves from street activism to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. A starting point for any timely and relevant discussion regarding the future of lesbian, gay, bi and transgender people within Europe and throughout the world. Canvassing the European countryside, Rainbow's End covers significant territory:

• Berlin partygoers looking for an online hookup who stumble upon an activist organization’s website which causes them to rethink the relationship between gay culture and the internet
• An English man fighting for the basic human rights of his lover who has been deported to Russia
• Activist group Outrage’s actions intended to bring national and worldwide attention to injustices in gay, human and social rights
• Experiences of gay Arab men in the Netherlands
• The first publication of a gay and lesbian newspaper in the Arabic world
• A physically violent hate crime in Amsterdam which results in the victim developing acute agoraphobia
• Polish crowds chanting that they would like to see gay festival participants in the incinerators of nearby Auschwitz
• An anti-gay organization advocating to host its own “pride parade”

At the end of the rainbow, gay and lesbian existence reverberates in an intimate and moving way within a tense field of major political issues: newly established Christian and Islamic fundamentalisms, the curtailing of human rights, issues of asylum and right-wing radicalism. Rainbow's End suggests that there remains a great deal for the LGBT community to accomplish in the new Europe.
