Screening: Different From Others
June 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
To commemorate the 100-year history of cinema in Provincetown, PFS has partnered with Twenty Summers to present the 1919 film DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS. Arguably the earliest surviving cinematic work about LGBT people, the film was directed by Richard Oswald and co-written by Magnus Hirschfield, the famed psychologist who founded the German homosexual emancipation movement in 1897. DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS is believed to be the only film of a group of gay friendly movies during Germany’s Weimar Era that escaped destruction by the Nazis.
Composer Billy Hough and Arranger Sue Goldberg will accompany the silent film with an original arrangement composed specifically for the film. Both have achieved success as individual artists in their own right performing music for film, theater and as collaborators in their wildly popular group ‘Scream Along with Billy.”
Introducing the film is Brendan Lucas, the Legacy Project Manager for the Outfest UCLA Legacy project where he supports the collection, documentation, preservation and exhibition of LGBTQ moving images.
