Filming at Duke: Volker Schlöndorff's 'The Handmaid's Tale' (1990)

Volker Schlöndorff's 1990 cinematic adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel The Handmaid's Tale was partly filmed at Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina, in 1989. Here are a few snapshots that document the event.  
A hanging scene was filmed on the other side of this barrier.
