Lover Other. The Story of Claude Cahun and Marcel More

Trailer: Lover Other: The Story of Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore_barbarahammer.com from Barbara Hammer on Vimeo

1920’s Surrealist artists Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore come to life in this hybrid documentary. Lesbians and step-sisters, the gender-bending artists lived and worked together all their lives. Heroic resisters to the Nazis occupying Jersey Isle during WWII, they were captured and sentenced to death.

Award-winning queer filmmaker Barbara Hammer (USA) infuses her film with vigor using photographs, archival footage, dramatic interludes of a “found Cahun script”, and unique interviews of Jersey Isle residents who knew the “sisters”.
