Join us for the launch of our new 'Film of the Month' programme, with a special showing of Lover / Other: The Story of Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore (2006). This film by Barbara Hammer recounts the lives of 1920’s Surrealist photographer Claude Cahun, who lived with her stepsister Marcel Moore on the Nazi-occupied Isle of Jersey during the Second World War. Artists and lovers who openly resisted the Nazi, they lived peacefully among the island’s residents until they were sentenced to death by the occupiers. The film intercuts photography, archival footage, interviews and dramatised scenes.
