The Outfest UCLA Legacy Project is proud to present the U.S. premiere of our latest feature film restoration project! After the six years it took to obtain film elements from Russia, research translations from various texts, secure stills, and tint the new 35mm print, UCLA preservationists have completed the long-awaited final version of DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS. The restoration debuted at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, a significant homecoming after the film's original premiere in that city 97 years ago. Arguably the earliest surviving feature film about an LGBT protagonist, DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS, directed by Richard Oswald and co-written by famed psychologist Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld, tells a devastating, human, and all-too-common story of queer life under Paragraph 175 -- the 1871 German law criminalizing homosexuality. Young virtuoso Kurt Sivers approaches acclaimed violinist Paul Körner with the hope of becoming his student in early 1900s Germany. Paul agrees to take Kurt under his tutelage, which quickly blossoms into affection, but their relationship is thwarted when a nefarious interloper blackmails Paul by threatening to expose his homosexuality. Presented with a live accompaniment by Cliff Retallick.
