Different from the Others

1919, 50’, Black & White, DVD Restoration: Munich Film Museum
Music: Recorded piano score by Joachim Bärenz

From a 1919 leaflet promoting the film: “This film does not seek to exploit idle curiosity, nor to speculate on sensationalism. Rather, it presents in dramatic form a psychological portrait that is unique in its empathetic intensity. The film advocates on behalf of those unfortunate individuals who have run afoul of the law, not out of wantonness, but because of an inborn condition that has determined their orientation. These individuals deserve not our contempt, but our compassion.”

The film will be introduced by Stefan Drössler.

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).
