A semi-autobiographical short video play by Jamil Khoury, both/and disrupts the dictates of “either/or” and “us vs. them,” imagining identities that are holistic and non-fragmented.

In both/and, the characters of Jamil, Arab Man, and Gay Man explore and explode the constructed boundaries between American and Arab, Arab American and gay, for-profit and not-for-profit, and other assorted disputed territories.

DVD copies include On both/and and Being a Both/And-er, an 11-minute video essay in which writer-producer Jamil Khoury discusses the themes and ideas presented in his film. Khoury’s documentary film Not Quite White is also available from Typecast here.
