Taking place in London and based upon a novel the director claimed to have never read, Jules Dassin’s 1950 masterpiece Night In The City is relentless in its depiction of the formidable bleakness possessing the difficult situations our protagonist (Richard Widmark) must travel through to achieve a better life for himself. Equally formidable is the performance of Gene Tierney, bringing life to a wonderfully complex femme fatale full of inner torment as crushing as the suffocating chiaroscuro-laden city that surrounds her.

The first screening will be preceded by an informative introduction by AFS Lead Programmer Lars Nilsen.
