Must See: Salvation Army, the Remarkable Film About Gay Childhood

Salvation Army Movie
Strand Releasing

Based on writer Abdellah Taïa's novel about growing up gay in Morocco


Moroccan-born Abdellah Taia is a prize-winning author, and as critic Armond White explained about his debut feature film, Salvation Army, he "visualizes his feelings about gay identity with naturalness and eloquence," calling it one of the "most remarkable film[s] about a gay child..." stating:

"He is aided by Agnes Godard, the good cinematographer who worked on Claire Denis's sexually ambivalent, post-colonial European films (Chocolat, Beau Travail). Salvation Army's cinematic sophistication comes from Taia recognizing his cultural heritage (both European films and the Egyptian cinema of Yousseff Chahine are Taia's acknowledged inspiration.)"

Strand Releasing will make the film available on DVD March 31. Watch the trailer below:
