“The First Line” dramatizes the attempt by two Greek attorneys to force the return to Athens of the Parthenon Marbles (also known as the Elgin Marbles) from England, where the collection of ancient sculptures ended up in the possession of the British Museum. A free showing of the 2014 indie film is sponsored by the CSUS Hellenic Studies Program at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, Sacramento State Student Union ballroom.
