Art Cinema League To Present

Four ,moving picture programs,
featuring the American documentary,
the French, the Russian and the
German films, will be offered at two-
week intervals during the summer by
the Art Cinema League.
Memberships entitling the posses-
sor to one admission for each of the
programs may be purchased this
week only at the Union, the League
and Wahr's Book Store. Tickets for
single performances will not be sold
at any time.
The first program will be presented

at 8:30 p.m., Sunday, June 30, and
will consist of four examples of the
American documentary film. The
four will be ";The River," "Trhe City,"~
"The Plough That Broke the Plains"
and "New Schools for Old." These
productions deal respectively with
the Mississippi, city planning, the
dust bowl and progressive education,
and were all exhibited andsreceived
with enthusiasm at last year's
World's Fair in New York.
"Grand Illusion," a French film
based on the experiences of its di-
rector, Jean Renoir, in a World War
prison camp, will be featured on the
second program scheduled for the
same time on Sunday, July 14.
"Grand Illusion" was selected by the
National Board of Review of Motion
Pictures as the best film of 1939
produced in any country.
Two weeks later, July 28, the
Russian film "The Childhood of
Maxim Gorky," will be shown. This1
picture is based on Gorky's autobio-
graphical "My Childhood." written
in 1914 and depicts the early life in
Nizhni of that great artist and sup-
porter of the Russian revolution.
The final program of the series,
cn August 11, will be the German
"Kameradschaft," produced before
Hitler and based on a mine disaster.
The picture brings out vividly the
immediate post-war relationship be-
tween the French and German peo-
ple.
