Part of the program

A chamber drama tracing the cellmate relationship between imprisoned politically active journalist Raúl Juliá and gay window dresser William Hurt. While Hurt recounts the plot of a Nazi propaganda film—a sweeping WWII romance silently animated by Sonia Braga—he attempts to extract information from Juliá on behalf of the secret police. A moving examination of masculinity, betrayal, and sacrifice. (Jan to Mar ’86)
