To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the earliest surviving feature film about LGBTQ people, the Provincetown Film Society presents a special screening of the recently restored DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS.
Once feared lost, DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS is believed to be the only gay-themed movie from Germany’s progressive Weimar era that survived destruction after Hitler took power. A surviving copy was located during the collapse of the Soviet Union and was later restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive. The Provincetown Film Society offered a screening of the film earlier this year as part of the Provincetown Film Festival in June and it played to a sold-out house with rave reviews.
DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS will feature well-known Provincetown musician, Billy Hough, with original live accompaniment for the silent film, along with a vocal ensemble led by Grammy-award winner Jason McStoots. The screening begins at 7:30, and includes a Q&A and extra music set by Billy!
$75 VIP tickets are available, and include a pre-show reception featuring the different flavors and tastings of Dorchester, preferred seating at the Strand Theatre and a meet & greet with Billy Hough.
General Admission tickets are $25, $20 for students.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Provincetown Film Society and The Trevor Project.
There will be an earlier screening of the film on October 24 at the Provincetown Theater.
