Free film noir this fall

The Emory Cinematheque Series presents film noir classics for its weekly 35mm screenings this fall.

Series curator Michele Schreiber says film noir never ceases to fascinate audiences. “These films are unique in their dark and pessimistic depiction of American culture—a rarity in the classical Hollywood period—and contain a host of other ingredients that make them among American cinema’s best: great music, striking visuals, interesting storytelling, and complex character types,” says Schreiber, assistant professor of film studies.

Emory Cinematheque, a collaboration between Emory College and the Department of Film and Media Studies, is one of the few film series bringing 35mm repertory programming to the Southeast. In addition, the film department hosts special screenings and lectures by international filmmakers, scholars and critics.
