Editor’s note: This article was originally published October 28, 2013

In tandem with the current monumental exhibit culled from its equally-monumental Magnum Photo collection, the Ransom Center hosts a free film series, spotlighting the film work of Magnum’s photographers.

The series begins Nov. 3 and continues every Sunday through Nov. 24. Films screenings begin at 2 p.m.

First up is a double-header designed to highlight two of the famous founders of Magnum Photos. The Decisive Moment (1973) is a film narrated by Henri Cartier-Bresson and directed by Cornell Capa.

Robert Capa: I Love and War (2002), written and directed by Anne Makepeace, spotlights the famous Hungarian-born photographer known for his vivid war photography.

The film series is free, but donations are welcome.
