Coming Out still image, Matthias and Philipp embrace

Coming Out (1989, dir. Heiner Carow)

As a boy, Philipp was strongly attracted to his best friend, but he put that behind him in order to live within the “norm.” But Philipp cannot deny his passionate desire for a young man. After years of repressing his sexuality, he finally accepts himself for who he truly is. Coming Out is the only East German feature film to focus on homosexuality, and it premiered the day the Berlin Wall fell.
