Cinemascope: Hunted: The War Against Gays in Russia

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: This documentary follows people from the LGBT community in Russia after new legislation in 2013 prohibited so-called gay propaganda in the country. We meet various people who have been attacked for being gay, get to know how hard they struggle, and how they try to live with being gay without making it public.

This HBO documentary is tough to watch and really upsetting, but I think it is important to learn more about the issues discussed.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a documentary worth watching.
