Film Noir: America’s Expressionist Cinema
In four, three-hour classes, this study group will examine the origins of the “film noir” style of filmmaking in German Expressionism and pulp fiction. We will consider the particular elements of this style including narrative structure, visual design, acting, and subject matter. The instructor will present a 45-minute lecture to provide historical context, as well as practical and theoretical approaches to guide film analysis. This will be followed by screening a film that exemplifies some aspect of the film noir style. Dr. Aldridge is an Emeritus Professor of Film Studies at EMU. He holds a B.A. and M.A. from UNC and a Ph.D. from UM. Parking info not included. Please see our catalog for a parking map.
