JOIN US for this monthly film discussion series with facilitator Ron Hagell!

German technicians and directors migrated to Hollywood through the middle of the 20th century and greatly influenced a style of crime dramas known collectively as "film noir," literally "black movies." The look was dominated by sparse settings, high key shadowy lighting, tough talking cops and bad guys (and girls). The style so dominated the screen that its legacy is still with us today.

This series looks at the style from the origins in Berlin into the end of the beginning, with 40s & 50s Hollywood movies that are now classics.

January 24 -- "M" (1931) Directed by Fritz Lang (Metropolis) and made in pre-war / Pre-Nazi Berlin.

February 14 -- Double Indemnity (1944)

March 14 -- Maltese Falcon (1941)

April 4 -- "D.O.A." (1950) The end of an era of stylized film noir.
