FILMS
In Nuremberg, the unions have a good working relationship
with the GYA which furnishes films, projector and operator for
regular film evenings to which any young worker can buy a
ticket for a few pfennigs. The unions have little to say
about what films will be shown and, while they are not unsuitable
for youth programs, they often have very little positive value.
The question in their minds is how to use these very popular
programs in a more constructive way. The hall is always crowded
for the programs.  Tickets are sold through the youth chairman in
the shops.
Some selected films of vocational and social interest were
shown recently at a leadership training session in Nuremberg in
order to give group leaders an idea of what films are available
for educational programs. These included the TVA documentary,
a Swiss railroad union film, and a film on steel production.
As yet, there has been no experience in using films in youth
assemblies in the plants, or as the basis for group discussion
in club programs.
In other cities, cooperation with GYA has not been so close
or satisfactory, the chief complaint being that GYA policy and
offerings vary so often that one cannot depend on getting films
shown when they would fit into group programs.
