The screening will begin at 8 PM. Documentary makers Robert Drew, DA Pennebaker and Hope Ryden are scheduled to attend. Produced by filmmaker Robert Drew, "Jane," according to press notes, is a "fascinating bridge between the more narrative origins of documentary and the naturalistic style then being ushered in. For 'Jane' Drew assembled an A-team of talents on their way to becoming noted cinéma vérité artists: DA Pennebaker and Hope Ryden, and Richard Leacock, already well known as cameraman for Robert Flaherty. Following a 25-year-old Jane Fonda in her ill-fated Broadway debut, the film unflinchingly documents the highs and lows, joy and pain of launching a new play, and features cameos by the Actors Studio's Lee Strasberg and critic Walter Kerr."

Jane Fonda made her Broadway debut in There Was a Little Girl and was also seen in Invitation to a March, The Fun Couple, Strange Interlude and last season's 33 Variations.

The IFC Center is located at 323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street. Call (212) 924-7771 or visit www.ifccenter.com for more information.
