Pioneers of Queer Cinema - Online Screenings

Friday, June 12, 2020

Kino Lorber presents new restorations of three "Way Ahead of Their Times" classic films, available as a package. MICHAEL NR / 93 min. 1924. German intertitles w/ English subtitles. Danish film master Carl Theodor Dreyer's MICHAEL is a mature and visually elegant period romance decades ahead of its time, one of the earliest and most compassionate overtly gay-themed films in movie history. MÄDCHEN IN UNIFORM NR / 87 min. 1931. German w/ subtitles. This artfully composed milestone of lesbian cinema - and an important anti-fascist film - was the first of just three films directed by Leontine Sagan. VICTOR AND VICTORIA NR / 84 min. 1933. German w/ subtitles. Produced in the final days of the Weimar Republic, VICTOR AND VICTORIA received limited exposure in the US, and is best known by the 1982 remake and the 1995 Broadway production. Viewers will be delighted that the original is every bit as charming and outrageous, reminiscent of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder.
