It’s a Gay Essential:
Mixed Kebab is a Belgian drama that examines the crossroads between gay and straight, and modern and traditional Muslim lifestyles. Cultures clash as a closeted gay Muslim man must face the prospect of an arranged traditional marriage. Written and directed by Guy Lee Thys, this film stars Cam Akkenat, Simon Van Buyten, and Gamze Tazim.
“Mixed Kebab packs a lot into just under 100 minutes, telling an interesting story, full of complex emotions.”
— Big Gay Picture Show
“Writer and director Guy Lee Thys delight in reworking the arranged marriage scenario, along the way acutely illustrating the pressures to succumb to social and religious conformity, against the call of one’s heart.”
— Gay Celluloid
“Belgian writer-helmer Guy Lee Thys’ film recalls “My Beautiful Laundrette” in its busy agenda of seriocomic culture-clashing issues.”
