The Children's Hour

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine as sapphic headmistresses at a girls’ boarding school in the first mainstream American film to *ever* feature a lesbian character in a leading role? What more could you possibly want?!?

Well if you do want more, we are pulling out a few stops for this screening, which will go down June 5th at 8pm and celebrate not only William Wyler’s 1961 film The Children’s Hour but the release of Julia Erhart’s book about the film for the fabulous McGill-Queens University Press series Queer Film Classics. Erhart will be joining us live via Zoom from Australia to talk about the film afterwards!
