The influence of German filmmakers in Hollywood has been substantial. Genres such as the 1940s film noir or the 1950s melodrama owe a great deal to directors such as Fritz Lang, Douglas Sirk, and Billy Wilder, all of whom made their mark on Hollywood and film history.
Join us for the screening of 10 films that trace the influence of the German filmmakers who made their way to Hollywood. These films are part of a course on German film being taught by Centre director James Skidmore. All films will be in English or with English subtitles, and admission is free.
Screenings are Tuesday evenings, 6:30pm, East Campus Hall, Room 1220. East Campus Hall is located at 263 Phillip Street, behind University Shops Plaza. Parking is available in Lot Q, to the north of East Campus Hall, entrance off of Phillip Street. Cost is $5/day (flat rate).
