Manchester Film Co-op
The film co-operative’s first screening of 2012 is Mädchen in Uniform / Maidens in Uniform on 24 January.
Now acknowledged as an early classic of gay cinema, Maidens in Uniform is an atmospheric 1931 film so reviled by the Nazis that that they attempted – unsuccessfully – to destroy every copy.
Set in a Prussian boarding school for the daughters of officers and the bourgeoisie, it follows the part-tragic story of an unhappy pupil, Manuela whose crush on her angelic teacher, Fraulein Von Bernburg ruffles the feathers of the demonic Headmistress.
The films starts at 7.45 and will be followed by discussion.
Entry to film £3 or £2 for unwaged, low waged, students or OAPs.
