Film noir is at once a genre, a style, and a worldview.  View and discuss classic and recent examples of this fascinating cinematic form.  

We will examine the roots of noir in American crime fiction and German Expressionist filmmaking, the birth of classic noir in the 40s and 50s, and the development of neo-noir from the 70s to today.  Intended for students interested in exploring this fascinating form’s visual vocabulary, themes, and influence on world cinema.

The popcorn’s on us!

Lunch each day is included. Lodging is available on campus $75/night, private room & bath.
