A GAY GIRL IN DAMASCUS: THE AMINA PROFILE explores the story of Amina Arraf, a Syrian-American revolutionary whose blog A Gay Girl in Damascus acquires a huge following as the Syrian uprising gains momentum. Sandra Bagaria, a smart, young Montreal professional, is involved in an online affair with her when Amina is allegedly abducted by the Syrian secret police-sparking an international movement to save her from torture, rape or even death. Playing out like a detective story, A GAY GIRL IN DAMASCUS: THE AMINA PROFILE involves American intelligence agencies, major global media outlets, and a host of activists and sympathizers. But what starts as a love story becomes a tale of deceit and betrayal enabled by the global internet and viral social media.

Limited and VOD Releases: Exorcising Your Options

The Vatican Tapes

Every once and a while, I feel the need to apologize for the pun in the headline. This is one of those weeks.

Unexpected is the biggest release, but its reviews suggest it will do better on Video on Demand than in theaters.
