The Film Noir series and reading group at Philm Club, Fridays, 5:00pm, Zrinyi 14, room 412.

From Friday May 7th till the Middle of June we will be screening the classics of film noir, and doing some reading on the side. The screenings will take place every Friday at 6:00, an Zrinyi 14, room 412, and the reading group will gather at the same place an hour earlier, at 5:00pm.

We will start with the progenitors of the genre such as Maltese Falcon and Double Indemnity and probably end with some modern classics of neo-noir like the Blade Runner or even Miami Vice.

We will be reading texts about the movies we are watching and their connection to different philosophical topics. For Friday 7th we will be reading a short introduction by Mark T. Conard, “Nietzsche and the Meaning and Definition of Noir”,  and watching “The Maltese Falcon”. See you all there!
