In anticipation of the film's May 1 broadcast premiere on PBS, New Yorkers will have a chance to see the new feature length documentary Jesse Owens at a special free screening next Wednesday at Harlem Stage.

Produced, directed and written by Laurens Grant and Stanley Nelson, the team behind the Emmy-Award-winning documentary Freedom Riders, their new film tells the story of the most famous athlete of his time, whose stunning triumph at the 1936 Olympic Games captivated the world.

The Media That Matters short film Superstar will screen alongside Jesse Owens, in a program presented by the Black Documentary Collective.

"It's great that an organization like BDC exists to screen a diverse array of films, and to present this free screening for the community," said Laurens. "We're excited to get the film out there, and very glad that there finally is a documentary on Jesse Owens and his life and legacy to coincide with the Olympic year."

Jesse Owens screens at 7:30pm on Wednesday, April 11 at The Gatehouse at Harlem Stage.
