Madchen in Uniform, 1931

Part 1 of the 1931 film directed by Leontine Sagan, based on the book by Christa Winsloe. A film of great interest to the writers at Women & Film given its presentation of a matriarchy – an all-girls boarding school – and its treatment of a lesbian relationship between a student and the school’s governess.
