The Sandwich Nazi

Monday, March 16
1:30PM - 2:42PM

Alamo Lamar A
1120 S Lamar Blvd


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.
