A documentary about the tragedy surrounding the 1972 Summer Olympics will be the centerpiece of a new exhibit opening Friday at the Pollock Gallery at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts.
The 38-minute film directed by Sarah Morris called 1972 uses interviews and archival footage to present a new perspective on the kidnapping and murder of 11 Israeli athletes in Munich by a Palestinian terrorist group.
The film will show through Nov. 8, alongside a series of silkscreen prints by Morris called “Timecodes,” and three original posters from the Munich Olympics designed by Otl Aicher.
The Pollock Gallery is on the first floor of the Hughes-Trigg Student Center, and is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and on Saturday afternoons. Admission is free.
