The DLCL Fall Film Series: Crime and the City

Subject Code: 
DLCL
Course Number: 
152A
Description: 

This year's DLCL Film Series will explore the intimate relation between crime and the city in the way it is reflected in various national cinemas ranging from British post-war cinema, over the French and German New Waves, to contemporary Latin American Cinema. In a series of film screenings followed by discussions we want to engage in the question about how the aesthetics of crime is shaped by the urban landscape and its cinematic reflections. Following this intuition we want to find out why the city does not only seem to be an ideal habitat for criminals, but also for filmmakers.

All films start at 7:00 pm in building 200, room 305
