Two SC Films Win Top National Awards FU FRANCES STEVENSON Two SC cinema department Ims, “Bunker Hill—1956" and rhe Black Cat." received the her and Bronze Award Medal-rns resfiecthely in tho Look agazine-Screen Producers in-rcollegiate awards competition >noring the best campus-pio-jced motion pictures lor the holastic year 1955-56. The awards were presented at showing at Twentieth Centurv- Fo\ Studio Theatre last night by Samuel G. Engel, president of ihe Screen Producers Guild. ‘The Face of Lincoln" won the Bronze Medallion in the competition last spring, and SC received a previous award for the film ‘‘Let Me See.” SC has been honored in three out of the four competitions and has receeived more awards than any other university. "Bunker Hill 1936" is an 18- minute documenlary film in black and white. It tells the story ol the people downtown who found themselves in the midst of a redevelopment project—some by choice and some by chance. It is presented from the viewpoint of the dweller, designed to provoke critical thinking about the rehabilitation ol slum areas. “Bunker Hill—1956" was writ- ! ten and directed by Kent Mac-Kenzie, photographed by Robert Kaufman, sound by A.K.M. Haque and edited by Robert Xmifman and Kent MacKenzie. "The Black Cat" re-creates the famous <hort story of the same name by Edgar Allan Poe. This 15-minute film in color por-i trays a man trapped by an affliction that fate has cast on him and shows his struggle I against it. | The ‘Cat’ becomes a svmbol of his failure and drives him to murder his wife. In this highly dramatic film, the producers have attempted to maintain the unique qualities of Poe’s writings. By the use of simple abstract sets and effective changes in lighting, there is a gradual and persistent intensification of emo-i tional effect. | Credits for “The Black Cat” so to William C. Jersey Jr., di-rector; Nuretin Erturk, pho-I tography; Daniel YViegand, sound; Thomas Taylor and William C. Jersey Jr., editing ar.d William Manchau, narrator.
