Screening<br>Hiding in Plain Sight: The Case of Gay Life
May 08, 2019 | 06:30 pm - 08:00 pm

Perry Mason (1957–1966, CBS-TV) is known for its formulaic plots—attorney Mason (Raymond Burr) defends an innocent client and forces the real murderer to confess in a courtroom finale. With its stylish noir filming, outdoor locations, and deep background characterizations, the series arguably also featured a prescient queer subtext. Burr was a gay man who led a covert life, but on the show, Mason is consistently paired with his investigator, Paul Drake (William Hopper), in harmonious, sometimes domestic contexts—especially notable in the episode we'll screen: The Case of the Borrowed Baby (1962).

Directed by Joseph Lovett, this film documents gay life in New York—from Greenwich Village to the Fire Island Pines—during the decade of liberation and sexual abandon following Stonewall and before the outbreak of AIDS.

Feb 14, 2019 | 06:30 pm - 08:00 pm

Years before they moved to Hollywood, four young German filmmakers—later noir masters Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer, and future Oscar winners Billy Wilder and Fred Zinneman—collaborated on this effervescent, sunlit silent about city dwellers enjoying a weekend outing in Weimar-era Berlin. Combining documentary footage with dramatic storytelling, this experimental film became a mainstream hit, presaging both Italian neorealism and the French New Wave. 73 min., black-and-white, silent.

Feb 12, 2019 | 06:30 pm - 08:00 pm

What was it like to be a Jew in Nazi Germany? For those trapped in the Nazi terror regime, mere survival became a nightmare.

All were pressed to the limits of human endurance and loneliness. Marion Kaplan, Skirball Professor of Modern Jewish History, NYU, and Rachel Stern, Director of the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized, and Banned Art and Curator of Fritz Ascher, will discuss.
