OFF: Killing of Sister George
ZDA, 1968, 140’
Directed by: Robert Aldrich
Killing of Sister George is a 1968 American film based on the 1964 play by British playwright Frank Marcus. In the film, an aging lesbian television actress, June “George” Buckridge, simultaneously faces the loss of her popular television role and the breakdown of her long-term relationship with a younger woman called Childie. The film was marketed as a »shocking drama«, as it added explicit lesbian content, and the historical scenes from the famous lesbian Loindion club called Gateways Grind.
