Screening: A Love to hide

A  Love to Hide tells  the moving and true story of a young jewish girl looking to escape Nazi-occupied  France, who is sheltered by her childhood friend Jean and his lover Philippe.  This powerful depiction of humanity at its worst and at its best, won 9 awards  at major gay and lesbian film festivals. Emotionally-charged, the film is, as  its heart, a beautiful love story in the face of extreme antisemitism,  homophobia and brutality. French with English subtitles.
