Sebastian MEISE Austria, Germany 116 Min R21 (Homosexual Content) Southeast Asian Premiere
In this sobering portrait of a man repeatedly imprisoned for ‘deviant’ acts, solace can only be sought in his fellow cellmates.
In postwar Germany, Hans HOFFMANN becomes a regular inmate charged under the country’s anti-sodomy laws. Across multiple jail terms, he meets various men who punctuate his interrupted life—men he would come to love. Men who would show him the solitude and sorrow that accompany the label of criminal.
