Divided Worlds: Films by Arne Sucksdorff

A program of short films by the neglected Swedish master Arne Sucksdorff, most of them concerned with nature and animal life: A Summer Saga (1941), Trut! (Sea Hawk) (1944), Shadows on the Snow (1945), Symphony of a City (1946), and A Divided World (1948). Sometimes the subjects have allegorical resonance—the gulls in Trut! are said by some commentators to reflect the Nazis—but the beauty and purity of the cinematography are a near constant in his work.
