Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Paragraph 175 fills a crucial gap in the historical record of World War II - the Nazi persecution of homosexuals - and reveals the lasting consequences of this hidden chapter of 20th century history. Winner of the Documentary Directing Award at Sundance Film Festival (2000), and the FIPRESCI Prize and Teddy Award for Best Documentary Film at Berlinale, Paragraph 175 remains a significant account of a little known history told from the voices of those who survived.
