"The Einstein of Sex"
Directed by Rosa von Praunheim
political and sexy, this historical drama from Rosa von Praunheim (A
Virus Knows No Morals) dramatizes the story of Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld, a
gay scientific theorist who pioneered gay studies in 19th century Berlin,
long before even the Kinsey Report broached the subject. Hirschfeld's
accomplishments included establishing the first gay political group and the
first medical practice specifically for gays, which thrived until the Nazis
took control. German with English subtitles. 98 minutes.
