BetterArts' new movie-screening series kicks off at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday, July 10, with a double-feature of film noir classics at Better Farm in Redwood.
Film noir is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Hollywood's classical film noir period is generally regarded as extending from the early 1940s to the late 1950s.
Thursday's screenings are set to include Orson Welles' Touch of Evil and John Huston's The Maltese Falcon. Summary sheets—and popcorn!—will be provided. Before the screening, attendees will hear a bit about the genre of the films and their impact on the film community and society as a whole. A led discussion with instructor James Challice will follow the films.
