NOIR CITY PASSPORT 2022
NOIR CITY, a Bay Area cultural institution since 2003, returns from COVID-19 hiatus for an incisive and inspiring four-day film festival at a new venue, Oakland's historic Grand Lake Theatre. Produced, programmed and hosted by Eddie Muller, this year's edition, subtitled "They Tried to Warn Us!" showcases 12 movies from mid-twentieth-century Hollywood sure to resonate with contemporary viewers. "Film noir is revered for its incredible sass and style," Muller says, "but many of the films were also warning flares about issues that still plague our culture more than seventy years later." Included in this year's lineup are shockingly prescient films focusing on megalomaniacal politicians, corrupt businessmen, neo-Nazis, racism, anti-Semitism, sexual predators, serial killers, police brutality--even a viral epidemic! This NOIR CITY program could not be more timely or topical. "That said, this isn't like taking your medicine," Muller notes. "It will be a restorative tonic for folks eager to see classic movies again on a big screen and enjoy, with the prescribed protocols, a return to the party atmosphere NOIR CITY is famous for."
