Kenneth Macpherson, GB/CH 1930, silent with German subtitles, 71 min

Location: Studio 3,
Kaiserpassage 6,
76133 Karlsruhe

Although the 1920s brought him acclaim as a stage actor and singer, Paul Robeson still had to prove himself as a viable screen performer. Mainstream avenues were limited, however, and his first films were made on the peripheries of the film business. "Borderline", the sole feature of British film theorist Kenneth Macpherson, boldly blends Eisensteinian montage and domestic melodrama, and features Robeson and his wife, Eslanda, as lovers caught up in a tangled web of interracial affairs.

Dry Kisses Only
Kaucyila Brooke and Jane Cottis, 1990, 75 min

Through manipulated film clips, the hilarious commentary of Theory Woman and interviews with the Lesbian on the Street, this marvelous videotape explores the lesbian subtext of classical films-the dry kisses of the tape's title.

Hollywood movies are re-edited to find the truth behind the relationships between the heroine and the "other woman." Dykella and Dykenna chew over lesbian vampire stereotypes. And gossip columnist Lady Manilla Lively gives the inside scoop on lesbians in today's Hollywood. "Dry Kisses Only" tells a story at once obvious and long-overdue, affirming the validity of lesbian readings of popular culture and the tenuous truths of gossip.
