Outfest West Hollywood Series: COMING OUT 25TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
COMING OUT 25TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING

WED | OCT. 1 | 7:30 PM | West Hollywood City Council Chambers at West Hollywood Library

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of COMING OUT, the first (and only) LGBT-themed film produced in East Germany. The film holds another unique place in world history: during its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, the Berlin Wall began to be dismantled.

After the film there will be a post-screening discussion with Outfest UCLA Legacy Project Manager Alice Royer with guests from the Wende Museum and the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives, the collaborators for this screening.

Anecdote about Coming Out: The film premiered in East-Berlin on 9 November 1989. When the news broke that the border between East and West had been opened, the film was stopped and the audience was informed about the event taking place outside the cinema. The vast majority of the audience demanded to see the rest of the film before joining the masses outside.
