This course will focus on Classic Film Noir, a genre of film that originated in the United States, primarily during the Post World War II era. Film noir, which means “black film,” was named because of its unique look, style, characters, mood and content. This course will examine this genre of the 1940s and 50s, as well as screen and discuss three well-respected classic noir films. Each session will include information about the film noir genre, screening of a classic noir film, and a follow-up discussion about the film.
