  • Different from the Others

    1919. Germany. Directed by Richard Oswald. Screenplay by Richard Oswald, Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. With Conrad Veidt, Leo Connard, Ilse von Tasso-Lind, Alexandra Willegh. Perhaps the first film to argue for gay rights, this pioneering melodrama imagines a chilling scenario precipitated by Paragraph 175 of Germany’s penal code, which made sex between men a crime—and a cause for blackmail. Courtesy of Filmmuseum, Munich. Silent, with English intertitles and musical accompaniment. Approx. 55 min.
