Deli owner Salam Kahil is an art collector, a former male escort, an amateur musician, and a sandwich maker to the homeless in Vancouver’s poorest neighbourhood but his true passion is talking about blowjobs. The Sandwich Nazi follows Kahil as he struggles to come to terms with aging, failing health, and a past that forced him to flee his home in Lebanon as a child.
The film had its World Premiere at SXSW where it was nominated for the Documentary Grand Jury Prize.
