Synopsis
Parvez Sharma documents clandestinely (with an iPhone) his pilgrimage to Mecca – a perilous journey that he had to take to find out if he can secure a place within the religion that condemns him. This documentary unflinchingly attempts to reconcile his faith and sexuality, providing a voice to the minority.

A Sinner in Mecca escapes the glorious, cyclonic shots of pilgrims around the Kaaba and brings its audience down to eye-level, so that they may witness the reality of the locale. Backdropped by frequent and pervasive news of religious extremism and sectarian conflicts, this timely and important film is one man’s response to an open wound in his psyche, an honest and heartfelt yearning of one individual that, while unresolved, courageously opens a passage and possiblity towards better pastures.
