Farewell to Xulhaz

a short film by Larissa Korporaal

"We need to have high dreams to survive through this bitter reality" - Xulhaz Manan

A poetic film about overcoming depression through art after the murder of a dear friend who was killed because he was 'propagating sinful homosexuality'.
Farewell to Xulhaz is about friendship, murder, depression and how art can reach you when nothing else can.

Even though this is a personal film, it addresses the universal themes of love, depression, resilience and hope."
