"A sibling survivor story of uncommon personal and political breadth."--Daily Variety

The newest film from the creators of Paris Was a Woman and Before Stonewall, Escape to Life: The Erika and Klaus Mann Story is a vivid portrait of the openly gay children of esteemed German writer Thomas Mann. Authors, cabaret performers, and courageous anti-Fascists, Erika and Klaus enjoyed an intense sibling relationship that became strained by life in exile, drug addiction, and conflicting family loyalties. Includes rare interview and archival footage, plus voiceover narration from Vanessa and Corin Redgrave. (83 mins.)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
