Film Screening: The Circle (Der Kreis) @ Hackney Attic
Feb 13 @ 7:30 pm
Film Screening: The Circle (Der Kreis) @ Hackney Attic | England | United Kingdom

Swiss docudrama, written and directed by Stefan Haupt, screening for LGBT History Month 2018, which has a theme of Geography: Mapping the World.

Zurich, 1956. The young shy teacher Ernst Ostertag becomes a member of the gay organization DER KREIS (The Circle), whose publication unites the fragile yet vibrant post World War II gay community in Switzerland. Upon meeting cabaret singer and female impersonator Röbi Rapp, Ernst falls head over heels in love, and finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and acceptance of his homosexuality. For Röbi, it is a relationship that proves to last a lifetime.

Featuring a unique blend of narrative and documentary formats with the modern day protagonists commenting on the scripted sequences of the film, THE CIRCLE deftly charts the increasing repression against homosexuals in Zurich as the two young and very different men fight for their love, and, together with their friends, for the rights of gays.

This is an informal screening in our Attic Events Bar, there will be table seating and you are free to get up, wander around and enjoy a drink throughout the film.

Tickets £6
