Contemporary artist Ahmed Umar came to Norway as a political refugee in 2008. In 2015 he became infamous in the Sudanese community when he came out on Facebook as the first openly homosexual Sudanese man in the world. In this curious and empathetic documentary we follow this remarkable man as he journeys back to his land of birth – at the risk of his own life. THE ART OF SIN is a journey between worlds and cultures which explores questions of art and religion, nationality and belonging, love and sexuality.
