BENT by Martin Sherman

*Seraphina Stone, director*
*Peter Beard, actor - Horst*

The story of Max and Horst, two gay men who find themselves in Dachau for the offense of being homosexual. The love affair they create without ever touching is compulsive, soul-wrenching story that is unnerving to watch, and leaves an indelible impression which makes the mind churn considering it afterward. It’s truly a story of self-acceptance, tolerance, and love in the wrong place at the wrong time.

*Caitlin Karolczak, painter*
I explore a number of themes in my work, mainly the fragility of the human body and mind; disease and injury. My source imagery often comes from vintage photos I collect, early medical and memorial imagery. I am attracted to the way early photographers blur the line between artistic portraiture and medical illustration.

The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant by Rainer Werner Fassbinder
(Die bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant)

*Paul Von Stoetzel, director*
*Amy Schweickhardt, actress*

Petra Von Kant is a fashion designer. Some time ago, she divorced the husband she no longer loved. Until recently, she has been in a fairly satisfactory S M relationship with her assistant. When she develops an obsession with her fashion model, however, things become far more complicated.
