Kinonik’s presentation of 16mm films continues with this Phillip Marlowe mystery that would later influence French New Wave filmmakers Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard. A web of love triangles, blackmail, murder, gambling, and organized crime, this film is worth seeing again just to watch the sizzle of Bogart and Bacall.
KinoNoir is presented on the second Monday of the month by Kinonik with support from the Maine Humanities Council.
Kinonik’s mission is to promote and support the study of cinema through theatrical screenings projected from film. Kinonik screens 16mm films from the donated collection of Juris Ubans and donated academic collections; the eclectic selection offers a rich overview of film from the early days of cinema to the 60s. Join us in the shared darkness to rediscover the power of 24 fps communal cinema.
