Paragraph 175

October 22, 2016 @ 10:30 am

| $15

Paragraph 175

Presented by Academy Award winning director Rob Epstein

Dir: Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman, US, 2000, 81 mins

Academy Award winners Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s riveting, must-see documentary features historian Klaus Müller as he interviews survivors of the Nazi persecution of homosexuals under the horrific German Penal Code of 1871, Paragraph 175. Narrated by Rupert Everett, this essential documentary exposes the bigotry that dominated WWII and the damning law that remained on German books through the 1960s.

This screening stands powerfully on its own or as a contextual companion piece to DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS, the newly restored 1919 narrative film which screens in 35mm on Friday, October 21st at 6:30pm at the SVA Theatre, about two men torn apart by the Paragraph 175 law.
