Film Noir

Stanley Place, South Brisbane, Queensland 4101

31 Mar, 2017 - 21 May, 2017

Conjuring images of private detectives, femmes fatales, neon-lit streets and dive bars, film noir melded the glamour and thrills of Hollywood's crime films with the black and white aesthetics of German expressionism. Sexy, smart and sinister, these films offered escapism for 1940s and 1950s audiences still reeling from the Depression, two world wars and Cold War tensions. Film Noir considers a history of this distinctly American style. It brings together a selection of pre-noir films from the 1920s and 1930s, including beloved gangster stories (The Public Enemy 1931, William A Wellman) and influential German expressionist films (M 1931, Fritz Lang), alongside film noir classics (Double Indemnity 1944, Billy Wilder; The Big Sleep 1946, Howard Hawks). It also considers contemporary cinemas with the themes and aesthetics of film noir (Taxi Driver 1976, Martin Scorsese; Drive 2011, Nicolas Winding Refn) and its ongoing international influence (Goldstone 2016, Ivan Sen).
