European Crime Cinema: From Melville to Mackenzie
Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand
Tickets available from 10:00 on the day of the event - Mon 26 June, 17:50, Filmhouse.
The crime film has long been a staple of European cinema. Like all the best genre filmmaking, its framework offers an array of narrative and stylistic possibilities while also allowing directors to react to the socio-cultural realities of their time. With a focus on the 1970s and 80s, this richly illustrated lecture by Dr Pasquale Iannone (Teaching Fellow in Film Studies, University of Edinburgh) will take in works from acclaimed auteurs such as Jean-Pierre Melville as well as underappreciated figures such as Edinburgh’s own John Mackenzie.
