Cornerhouse continues its regular film course programme this autumn with what promises to be a topical and popular exploration of film noir. Entitled ‘Lone Wolves and Dangerous Dames’, the eight-week course covers the predominant themes, characters, narratives and visual style of the genre, while also including discussion of classic noir, neo-noir, retro-noir plus examples from a number of international film cultures. Cornerhouse’s film courses usually incorporate a couple of film screenings – with the cinema’s upcoming My Noir series likely to provide relevant examples this time round. The course is suited to beginners, with no prior knowledge required, and will be led by freelance film educator Maggie Hoffgen. It also links in with Cornerhouse’s upcoming Double Indemnity exhibition, which takes over its three galleries from Saturday 14 September until Sunday 5 January 2014, and 24-hour noir-athon, which features 11 films back-to-back on Saturday 14 September.
