Event Details

Running in parallel with Film Noir 2019, The Cinematheque presents its first ever retrospective devoted to Jean-Pierre Melville, master of French noir. Of the half-dozen films offered, four fits to the Cinematheque noir season ; the other two, set in Nazi occupied France – Léon Morin, Priest (1961) and Army of Shadows (1969) – flesh out the breadth of the auteur’s thematic concerns while, in the latter case, demonstrating the versatility of his neo-noir approach.
With the exception of Le Samouraï, screening from an imported 35mm print, all films will be presented in stunning digital restorations created for Melville’s centenary in 2017.

Opening night on August 1st, 6pm.
