Fräulein von Bernburg is an empathetic teacher at an all‐girls boarding school. When new student Manuela starts to fall in love with her kindly tutor, pupil and teacher soon discover that their feelings are mutual.

As Manuela seeks to follow her heart, she encounters the challenges of pursuing a forbidden romance and a scandal soon erupts.

A key film of the Weimar era, which also carries a potent anti‐fascist message, Mädchen in Uniform is an undisputed landmark of lesbian representation on screen.

Pioneering and decades ahead of its time, this highly influential classic is presented on Blu‐ray for the very first time in the UK.
