Playing a Part: The Story of Claude Cahun 2006
A Jewish, lesbian intellectual who collaborated with Bataille, Breton, Michaux and Tzara, lived through the German occupation of Jersey during World War II and was sentenced to death by the Nazis for resistance activities, Claude Cahun is now celebrated as one of the major artists of the last century.

Thynne’s documentary film honors the life and work of a politically active feminist who, with her partner, participated in experimental theater initiatives, contributed to artistic, literary, and political manifestations of the Paris surrealist movement, and conducted a creative campaign of resistance during the German occupation.
