Queer Cinema Series: "Paragraph 175"

  • Savannah LGBT Center 1515 Bull Street Savannah, GA, 31401 United States (map)

On Oct. 22, the PFS partners with the Savannah LGBT Center, 1515 Bull St., and the newly formed “queer cinema series” The Look Back to screen the award-winning 2000 documentary “Paragraph 175.” The documentary paints a vivid and emotional portrait of homosexuals who were persecuted by the Nazi regime, through candid, moving interviews with some of the now-elderly gay men who survived that horrific experience.

Featuring previously unseen archival material and long-hidden personal photographs, “Paragraph 175” offers a vivid look at one of the least known and most disgraceful aspects of the Third Reich. Admission is free to this first in an ongoing series of important LGBT-centric feature films to be screened in the new community center’s meeting room; however, voluntary donations in any amount are encouraged to help defray operating costs. Seating is limited and begins at 6 p.m., with the film starting at 7 p.m.
