Chris & Don. A Love Story

Chris & Don. A Love Story

Director: Guido Santi, Tina Mascara
Year: 2007

CHRIS & DON: A LOVE STORY is the true-life story of the passionate three-decade relationship between British writer Christopher Isherwood (whose Berlin Stories was the basis for all incarnations of the much-beloved Cabaret) and American portrait painter Don Bachardy, thirty years his junior. From Isherwood’s Kit-Kat-Club years in Weimar-era Germany (the inspiration for his most famous work) to the couple’s first meeting on the sun-kissed beaches of 1950s Malibu, their against-all-odds saga is brought to dazzling life by a treasure trove of multimedia. Bachardy’s contemporary reminiscences (in the Santa Monica home he shared with Isherwood until his death in 1986) artfully interact with archival footage, rare home movies (with glimpses of glitterati pals W.H. Auden, Igor Stravinsky and Tennessee Williams), reenactments, and, most sweetly, whimsical animations based on the cat-and-horse cartoons the pair used in their personal correspondence. With Isherwood’s status as an out-and-proud gay maverick, and Bachardy’s eventual artistic triumph away from the considerable shadow of his life partner, CHRIS & DON: A LOVE STORY is above all a joyful celebration of a most extraordinary couple.

Different from the Others

Different from the Others

Director: Richard Oswald
Year: 1919

One of the first gay-themed films in the history of cinema. Different From the Others was banned at the time of its release, later burned by Nazis and was believed lost for more than forty years. Now recovered, this brave effort to repeal Germany's Paragraph 175 - which sentenced thousands of accused German homosexuals to jail terms for "unnatural vice between men" - is suprisingly progressive, even by today's standards. Starring Conrad Veidt (Cabinet of Dr. Caligari).
