What would you do if your existence suddenly became illegal; if your way of life and who you loved was deemed a crime punishable by torture and death?
Bent is a story of losing everything and then finding one thing in the midst of insurmountable persecution and oppression. This unlikely love story gives us a seldom viewed perspective of queer life in Nazi Germany after The Night of the Long Knives.
Bent strips humanity to its core and leaves a stark reminder of the delicate and precious natures of freedom and love, which still reverberate today.
