Film Noir

America’s Expressionist Cinema

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
In four, three-hour classes, this study group for those 50 and above 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.

Instructor Henry Aldridge 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.

This study group will meet on Mondays on September 18 and October 2, 16 and 30.
