Film Noir 101
6:30 PM
North Valley Public Library
Our ongoing genre series is branching out to film, beginning with the ever-distinctive film noir. A decidedly American style, film noir developed in the 1940s and is a result of, and a response to, the anxieties of WWII and the post-Depression Era. With historical context in mind, we will discuss this genre’s themes, archetypes, and how it speaks to social issues. We will also touch on the debate over whether film noir is a genre at all, how to recognize neo-noir today, and some of the classic films that gave us the femme fatales and moody cinematography we love today. Zoom option available.
