Following its terrific showings at the 2020 Outfest Fusion and Outfest Los Angeles film festivals, Outfest is thrilled to host a special Ramadan screening of Mike Mosallam's joyous new film Breaking Fast followed by a post-screening Q&A with the cast and crew hosted by Omar Sharif, Jr. Join us on Friday, May 7th at 5pm PT for this lovely and life-affirming livestreamed event!
Set against the twinkling lights of West Hollywood, Breaking Fast is a romantic comedy that follows Mo (Haaz Sleiman), a practicing Muslim still reeling from heartbreak. When an All-American guy named Kal offers to join him in his nightly Iftars - the traditional meal eaten by Muslims during Ramadan - meal after meal, the two start to discover they have more in common than meets the eye.
"My intention is to tell a story that speaks to the nuances of daily life and treats identity: religious, sexual, gender and otherwise, as harmonious lenses by which individuals interact with the world."
- Writer/Director Mike Mosallam
