First released 100 years ago, almost destroyed in the Nazi era, and once believed lost, silent film Different from the Others is an artistic call for gay liberation. The romance between a musician (Conrad Veidt) and his pupil is complicated by stigma and the attentions of an enigmatic blackmailer (Reinhold Schünzel). 

Screening as part of Fokus: Films from Germany season, a partnership between Goethe-Institut (Glasgow) and Filmhouse (Edinburgh).

All tickets £6.50

This centenary screening of the first explicitly LGBT film is followed by a 35 minute illustrated talk on queer culture in the Weimar Republic by researcher Keava McMillan. 

This event will be BSL interpreted. BSL users can contact GFT via contactSCOTLAND-BSL
