Time To Come garnered plenty of interest while it was in production, both for its successful Kickstarter campaign and for its timely story about a young, gay Muslim man contemplating what he should do. Now the short has been completed and it’s been released online for us all to take a look at.
The brief synopsis simply states, ‘Left alone, Rami must decide if his love for Lee is strong enough to come out as a gay Muslim.’ However, in it’s 15 minutes it manages to be about a bit more than that, looking at social and cultural pressures, and perhaps just as importantly the pressures we heap upon ourselves because of that. Often quiet and contemplative, it goes for the slow build as it first shows us Rami and Lee’s relationship, before starting to unpack the issues between them and whether Rami is able to do anything about it.
