In celebration of Gay Pride, the Minneapolis Jewish Film Festival and St. Paul Jewish Community Center present the Minnesota premiere showing of an Israeli GLBT documentary, Stefan Braun. Fabulous archival footage of Tel Aviv’s gay life from the 1950s immerses us in the world of society furrier Stefan Braun and the man who loved, worshipped and stood by him for 39 years, Eliezer Rath. Braun’s charisma and zest fascinated not only Israel’s wealthy matrons, chic models, and his many lovers, but also his extended family for whom he was a patriarch and benefactor.
The short film, A Trip to Prague, will also play at this event in case you missed is this March at the festival. Click here for a synopsis.
