Women in Film SE15 at Peckham and Nunhead
Free Film Festival 2017

Tuesday 5 September 2017
7.15pm, Peckham  Library, Pod 2
Paragraph 175 + Intro by Kate Hodkinson

Time: 7:15PM (Doors open 6.45PM)
Venue: Peckham Library – Pod 2, 
122 Peckham Hill St, Peckham, London SE15 5JR

PARAGRAPH 175 is an award-winning documentary about the persecution of gay men and women in Nazi Germany. Over 100,000 people were arrested under Paragraph 175 of the German penal code, and of those that were sent to concentration camps only 4,000 are known to have survived.

Five of these tell their stories in this film, in gripping accounts that bring to life the historical persecution and incarceration of LGBT people – serving as a stark reminder of the atrocities that homophobia continues to fuel in Chechnya today.

Read the joint interview by Kyna Morgan (Her Film Project) and Tracey Francis (Women in Film SE!5) with Gavin Kelleher, of The People’s Film Club about the Paragraph 175 screenings: www.herfilmproject.com
