This is the first in a series of four screenings, happening every Thursday in June, celebrating 20th-century queer cinema. This first showing will feature live musical accompaniment by local musician Jess Wamre for the black-and-white film Different from the Others. Filmed in 1919 in Weimar Republic–era Germany, Different was one the first sympathetic depictions of homosexuality on film, and subsequently became one of the many “decadent works” destroyed by the Nazis when they came into power. One copy survived, and you should watch it—celebrate the present with this haunting vision from a very repressive past.
