A LOVE TO HIDE

Tuesday, April 3, 5 p.m.

In Christian Faure’s 2005 film, a young Jewish girl seeks to escape notice of the Third Reich after witnessing her parents’ and sister’s brutal slaying as they attempted to make their way to England. She is sheltered by a man whose status as a member of the “third” sex soon leads to the Gestapo pounding on his door. Betrayed by a smuggler, terrified Sara flees into the comforting care of childhood summer vacation friend Jean and his lover Philippe. Though safe for the moment, Sara watches as her homosexual protector is forced into a Nazi labor camp.
Following the screening, a faculty member in CCU’s Department of History leads a discussion on the film’s cultural and historical context.

AUSTRIAN/GERMAN FILM SCREENING: YOUNG DR. FREUD/DER JUNGE FREUD

Tuesday, April 10, 5 p.m.

Axel Corti’s 2004 cinematic biography about the young Viennese neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis combines documentary material with dramatizations. It traces Sigmund Freud’s rise from a poor Jewish family and the increasing recognition of his theories in spite of opposition from mainstream society. The film will be shown in German with English subtitles.

Following the screening, Gary Schmidt, professor and chair of CCU’s Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, discusses how Freud’s ideas about sexuality challenged the dominant ideas of the time, and how his personal life influenced his professional aspirations and achievements.
