Film Noir Lecture Series
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Image result for film noir classics

Film noir is a mode of filmmaking that defined a short-lived moment of Hollywood films. While most of the films from this period that are now considered classics, were B movies at the time, the sharp eyes of French critics who saw them after WWII helped crystalize the stylistic elements that pushed them to become part of one of the most recognizable American film genres. Presented by Dr. Anthony Hayt, this six week course, will explore the defining aspects of film noir including its stylistic roots in German Expressionism; its thematic roots in American hardboiled fiction of the 20s, 30s, and 40s; and its legacy throughout the last 70years. We'll be watching and discussing: Double Indemnity (1944), Sunset Boulevard (1950), Chinatown (1974), Blade Runner (1982), and Blue Velvet (1986) all on the library's newly installed top-notch AV equipment. 

Dr. Hayt received his Masters in English from SUNY Buffalo in 2006 with the thesis ‘In a Lonely Place: The Rubble Between Binaries’ and his PhD in English from the University of Oregon with the dissertation Remade in Our Image: Gender, Melodrama, and Conservatism in Post-9/11 Slasher Remakes. He is the author of the article ‘Moving Past the Trauma:? Feminist Criticism and Transformations of the Slasher Genre.’ His academic interests include Feminist Theory, Gender Theory, Genre Theory, Horror Film, Independent Film, Popular and Hollywood Film. After teaching at the university level for nearly a decade, he is now the co-founder and Head of Business Development of Maaterra Biotechnology.

Film noir is a mode of filmmaking that defined a short-lived moment of Hollywood films. While most of the films from this period that are now considered classics, were B movies at the time, the sharp eyes of French critics who saw them after WWII helped crystalize the stylistic elements that pushed them to become part of one of the most recognizable American film genres. Presented by Dr. Anthony Hayt, this six week course, will explore the defining aspects of film noir including its stylistic roots in German Expressionism; its thematic roots in American hardboiled fiction of the 20s, 30s, and 40s; and its legacy throughout the last 70years. We'll be watching and discussing: Double Indemnity (1944), Sunset Boulevard (1950), Chinatown (1974), Blade Runner (1982), and Blue Velvet (1986) all on the library's newly installed top-notch AV equipment. 

Dr. Hayt received his Masters in English from SUNY Buffalo in 2006 with the thesis ‘In a Lonely Place: The Rubble Between Binaries’ and his PhD in English from the University of Oregon with the dissertation Remade in Our Image: Gender, Melodrama, and Conservatism in Post-9/11 Slasher Remakes. He is the author of the article ‘Moving Past the Trauma:? Feminist Criticism and Transformations of the Slasher Genre.’ His academic interests include Feminist Theory, Gender Theory, Genre Theory, Horror Film, Independent Film, Popular and Hollywood Film. After teaching at the university level for nearly a decade, he is now the co-founder and Head of Business Development of Maaterra Biotechnology. 

THIS EVENT IS FULL.

Join a park ranger from Allegheny Parks at the Hartwood Acres after dark! Who, who who is out there in the park at night!? Owls of course! Learn about nature's ultimate nocturnal predator and the adaptations they have evolved to make them deadly night hunters. Practice your owl calls as we try to hear these amazing birds while we make our way through the park on the trails at night. Great for all ages, including adults! 

Meet at the Mansion Parking Lot and wear your best walking shoes! We'll be walking about 2 miles over somewhat rough terrain with rocks and logs to step over.
