Third World Film Festival Film Noir vs Neo Noir

Third World Film Festival Film Noir vs Neo Noir Saturday, March 28, 12pm-8pm – The ARC, 675 Ali Baba Avenue, Opa-locka

This one-day film festival will explore cinema’s stylish film noir and neo-noir genres in the developing world. Film noir from the 1930s-1950s is characterized by stark, angular shadows; conflicted anti-heroes; chiaroscuro lighting; determined, beautiful, scheming women; obscured scenes; and isolation in modern cities. Neo-noir addresses philosophical questions about the essence of human nature, guilt, redemption, and problems of knowledge, memory and identity, while blurring the lines between right and wrong, good and evil. Two films per genre will be screened to introduce and expose the art of stylized filmmaking and foreign films in Opa-locka. FREE public event. Viewer discretion is advised as some films may not be suitable for children. Light refreshments and snacks will be served. Presented by Florida International University Honors College Third World Cinema class and Opa-locka Community Development Corporation. @OLCDC
