Provincetown Film Society Proudly Presents DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS
A special screening of the landmark silent film with original live accompaniment by Provincetown musician Billy Hough and Grammy winning tenor Jason McStoots with ensemble.
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the earliest surviving feature film about LGBT people, the Provincetown Film Society presents a special screening of the recently restored DIFFERENT
FROM THE OTHERS.
Once feared lost, it’s believed to be the only gay-themed movie from Germany’s progressive Weimar era that survived destruction after Hitler took power. The film tells a compelling story of secrecy and oppression that continues to play out in today’s world. The film stars Conrad Veidt (Major Strasser in Casablanca) as Paul Körner, a violinist whose romance with a talented male student is thwarted when a blackmailer threatens to expose the relationship and Körner’s homosexuality, then a crime under Germany’s notorious Paragraph 175.
