"Der Kreis" was a Swiss gay magazine that was published between 1932 and 1967, which despite its modest print run found its way to readers scattered all over Europe and the US. In THE CIRCLE, Stefan Haupt restages some of the most important and tumultuous incidents in the magazine's history as period drama and intersperses them with current interviews with the people who lived through it all. The resulting movie is an insightful portrait of a remarkable period in the history of gay activism.
