Maedchen in Uniform (DVD+BLU)
Leontine Sagan’s pioneering and internationally acclaimed 1958 lesbian love story – Girls in Uniform – is a landmark of LGBT cinema.
"It is a beautiful, tender and really artistic cinematic work." – New York Times
Leontine Sagan's early talkie has been prized for its innovative use of sound, as a prime example of Weimar Expressionism, and, most of all, as a cult lesbian classic.
Young Manuela responds to the harsh regime in her all-girl Prussian boarding school for aristocratic families by developing a deep attachment to her teacher, Fräulein von Bernburg.
The headmistress attempts to nip the relationship in the bud, but Manuela's fellow students rally to her support.
The story is an adaptation of Christa Winsloe's play, Gestern und Heute ("Yesterday and Today")
