Houston Cinema Arts Society partners with Goethe Pop Up, Houston MFAH Films, and The Big Queer Picture Show to present the Houston premiere of Great Freedom.

In post-war Germany, liberation by the Allies does not mean freedom for everyone. Hans has been found guilty for his homosexuality, deemed grounds for imprisonment under Paragraph 175. Over the course of decades, he is spied on and repeatedly jailed as a result.

As Hans returns to prison again and again, he develops an unlikely bond with his cellmate Viktor, a convicted murderer. What begins as revulsion blossoms over time into something far more tender.

Winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at Cannes, and starring an exceptional Franz Rogowski (Transit), Sebastian Meise’s Great Freedom is a searing depiction of love in the face of injustice.
