Our first “Real-to-Reel” meeting will be Wednesday, July 28 at 7 PM ,and continuing our Pride Month theme, we will be discussing “The Circle.” This 2014 docu-drama from Switzerland tells the story of Ernst Ostertag and Röbi Rapp, two members of a social network of gay men in Zurich during the 1950’s known as “Der Kreis” (the Circle). The film intersperses current interviews with the two men with dramatizations of events from the ’50’s and ’60’s.
