Documentary film, 2022, 97 min, Original with German Subtitles

In the straitlaced 1950s and 1960s, cross-dressing men and trans women found temporary refuge, community, and joy gathering at a house in the Catskills. Filmmaker Sébastien Lifshitz’s documentary explores this vibrant group through archival images and interviews with Casa Susanna’s visitors.

There will be a Q&A with Sébastien Lifshitz and Thomas Abeltshauser after the film screening.
