Olympic films to be screened at Cinema City

Two Olympic-themed films will be shown as the University of East Anglia's Reels of History series returns.

Controversial filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl's 1938 documentary Olympia Part 1: Festival of the Nations will be shown on April 22.

On May 20, Stephen Spielberg's Munich will be screened, telling the story of a secret Israeli squad assigned to kill a Palestinian suspected of having killed 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

The series has been organised by the UEA's School of History, whose experts will provide introductions to the films, with Cinema City and Cinema Plus.
