The father of lesbian writer, photographer, journalist, and morphine addict Annemarie Schwarzenbach suggested that she work for Hitler’s “great, purifying movement”; instead she wrote mostly unpublished anti-Nazi articles. Her mother rejected her; she lurched from one lover to another; a brother, disgusted by her homosexuality, felt she wasn’t worth the cost of a sanatorium. Director Carole Bonstein’s 2000 video offers excerpts from Schwarzenbach’s writings, friends’ letters, and family home movies, as well as period footage of places she lived and interviews with a few who knew her, including her gay ex-husband. In French with subtitles. 58 min.
