Olympia, Part 1: Festival of the Nations

The notorious but supremely talented Leni Riefenstahl (Triumph of the Will) shot this poetic, two-part account of the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics—the greatest sports film ever made. Part 1 concentrates on the carrying of the Olympic torch and the lighting of the flame—and also on track and field events starring Cleveland’s Jesse Owens, whose four gold medals punctured Hitler’s notions of Aryan superiority.

English narration. 35mm. 120 min. See Part 2 (below) on the same night for an additional $4.
