Echoes of the 10th Noir Film Festival
Like every year, we have organized the Echoes of this year’s 10th anniversary Noir Film Festival for our most loyal fans, as well as for those who could not come to Český Šternberk this August. At the traditional venue, the Small Hall of Prague’s Lucerna cinema, and at the traditional November time (17-19 November 2022), you can look forward to five films selected across the programme sections.
On Thursday 17 November, we will screen one of the titles from this year’s David Fincher mini-retrospective: Fight Club (1999), a cult film from the late 1990s based on the novel of the same name by American writer Chuck Palahniuk. On Friday 18 November, a pair of films await the audience: Kiss Me Deadly (1955), Robert Aldrich’s „apocalyptic“ noir that marks the end of the classic film noir phase, and Cape Fear (1962), which reunited Hollywood legends Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck. On the last day, Saturday, November 19, the San Francisco noir Thieves‘ Highway (1949), directed by Jules Dassin and included in this year’s main thematic section Blacklisted, and the noir classic Mildred Pierce (1945), based on James M. Cain and starring Joan Crawford in her only Oscar-winning role, will be available for viewing.
Tickets priced at CZK 130 can be purchased on the Lucerna cinema website.
