World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: GERMAN PROTO-NOIR

The German Expressionist filmmakers' thematic preoccupation with the dark side of human nature - as expressed in shadowy lighting, stark mise-en-scene, and morally ambivalent characters - was profoundly influential upon post-war cinema, especially the American film noir genre - and resonates today. The protagonists of these films struggle with an unsympathetic fate, and are most often brought down by fatal impulses, injustice, or bad women.
