Discover The Theory Of Sexuality...Relatively Speaking.

Long before the Stonewall riots, Masters and Johnson or even the Kinsey Report, there was Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. A gay German Jew living in 19th-century Berlin, Hirschfeld didn't just champion gay rights - he discovered them.

Now Rosa von Praunheim, the firebrand of German Cinema, tells Hirschfeld's story in this lush historical drama - from his first sexual stirrings to the eradication of his work by the Nazis. Splicing an enthralling story of discovery and romance with a barbed penchant for politics, von Praunheim presents a compelling account of the doctor who founded the first gay political group in 1897 and established the first medical practice for gays, the renowned Institute of Sexual Science, which thrived until Nazi oppression.

In The Einstein Of Sex (Hirschfeld's nickname from the American press) a legendary sex pioneer meets a maverick director to create both a celebration of gay history and an incisive piece of queer filmmaking.
