The Dark Side of Hollywood: Film Noir
Location: Media Room, Perelman Building
Paid tickets required
$125 ($100 members and Bryn Mawr Film Institute members)

Lecturer: Andrew J. Douglas, Director of Education, Bryn Mawr Film Institute

Film noir is a cycle of pictures that emerged, in the 1940s, from the confluence of Hollywood’s detective and gangster movies, hard-boiled fiction, and the aesthetics of German Expressionism. Typified by stark lighting, bleak urban settings, and corrupt, broken characters, noir has a fascination with doom, male anxiety, and transgression, the threats of which the spell-casting femme fatale embodies. Join us as we explore exemplary works from the genre, including The Maltese Falcon and Double Indemnity, among others.

This course is offered in collaboration with Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

Fashion Films
Location: Van Pelt Auditorium
Paid tickets required
$10 ($8 members; free for students with valid ID)

The world of fashion is chronicled in three films, including rarely screened documentaries by the celebrated American-born French fashion photographer and filmmaker William Klein.

  • Versailles ’73: American Runway Revolution (2012)
    • Wednesday, September 17, 2014, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
      When African American models Billie Blair, Pat Cleveland, Alva Chinn, Norma Jean Darden, Carlene Dash, Bethann Hardison, Barbara Jackson, Jennifer Brice, Ramona Saunders, and Amina Warsuma boarded a plane from New York to Paris in 1973, they had no idea they would be part of the biggest coup in the history of modern fashion. Director Deborah Riley Draper illustrates how ten women and five American ready-to-wear designers challenged the five lions of French haute couture in a showdown that transformed the fashion business forever.
  • Mode en France (Fashion in France) (1984)
    • Wednesday, September 24, 2014, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
      Essential viewing for anyone interested in fashion, William Klein’s sharp, satirical documentary presents an irreverent yet gleeful insight into high fashion in the 1980s. As a photographer for Vogue between 1955 and 1965, Klein shot some of the most iconic fashion images ever published by the magazine, focusing more on the atmosphere in the image than on the clothes.
  • In and Out of Fashion (1998)
    • Wednesday, October 1, 2014, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
      This collage-like film assembles segments from William Klein’s earlier documentaries to present a cinematic retrospective of his work as a photographer and filmmaker. Klein’s studies of fashion range from rare footage of an Yves Saint Laurent runway show to black-and-white images shot backstage at Paris haute couture shows, plus musings on what we can learn by studying how even ordinary people dress.
