Lecture and Discussion: “Parallel Worlds: The Legacies of East Germany’s Coming Out”

November 9 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Hosted by University of North Texas – Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures

Presented by Dr. Dr. Kyle Frackman, University of British Columbia

Tanya and Philipp work together and are both dedicated teachers. They become close and move in together. Things get complicated for Philipp when he meets Matthias, however, as they fall passionately in love. Philipp struggles with his identity and what to do; it is hard to overcome years of repressing his sexuality. This East German film premiered on November 9, 1989, the same day that the Berlin Wall fell and it has been heralded as “one of the landmark works of gay cinema.”
