JESSE OWENS
FACETS CINEMATHEQUE

Saturday, June 16
8:30pm  Jesse Owens
Q&A with Director after the screening

Jesse Owens  Chicago Premiere

This powerful documentary centers on the African American track and field star, Jesse Owens, who triumphed at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin amidst the rise of Nazi propaganda. Despite the racial discrimination he endured, Jesse Owens' grace and athleticism rallied crowds across the globe. But when the four-time Olympic gold medalist returned home, he could not even ride in the front of a bus. The story of the 22-year-old son of a sharecropper who triumphed over adversity to become a hero and world champion, JESSE OWENS is also about the elusive, fleeting quality of fame and the way Americans idolize athletes when they suit our purpose, and forget them once they don't.

USA, 2012, 60 min, documentary English, Laurens Grant, dir.
