German Film Series, Fall 2008 - Sexual Revolutions in German Cinema

Tue, September 30, 2008 • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM • EP Schoch 4.104 Conference Room

In his adaptation of Jean Genet's 1947 novel, Fassbinder presents us with the story of sailor Georges Querelle.

In the gritty and surreal port city of Brest, Querelle begins to frequent a brothel run by Lysiane, his brother's lover. There he meets Nono, and in the power games that follow, Querelle confronts desires that push the boundaries of social interaction, and challenge the meanings of "normal" sexuality.
