She Loves Me!
A swoon-along screening of the first ever lesbian film. Thrill to the smoulder between dreamy Manuela and gentle Fräulein von Bernburg! Sigh as Manuela abandons her pinafore for doublet and hose! With an all-female cast, directed by a woman and featuring positive depictions of lesbians, it was ground-breaking in many ways and inevitably banned as “decadent” by the Nazi regime.
Introduction by writer So Mayer of Club Des Femmes, a queer feminist film curation collective plus live performance, stockings and kissing from Georgeous Michael.
