THE SOUTHERNER

United States | 1945 | Jean Renoir

THE SOUTHERNER film still

Widely regarded as the best American film by the great Jean Renoir, this poetic masterpiece focuses on a Texas sharecropper (Zachary Scott) who decides to acquire his own land and work for himself. But challenges and hardships abound. Originally banned in Tennessee, The Southerner was also condemned by the KKK for its (alleged) unflattering depiction of rural life in the South. Script co-written by William Faulkner (uncredited). 35mm. 91 min.

Special admission $14; members, CIA/CSU I.D. holders, age 25 & under $11; no passes. 35mm preservation print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
