*Film noir genre generally refers to mystery and crime drama films produced from the early 1940s to the late 1950s. Movies of this genre were characteristically shot in black and white, and featured stories involving femme fatales, doomed heroes or anti-heroes, and tough, cynical detectives. Other characteristics include low key or artificial lighting, scenes shot at night or under the rain, blurriness and voiced over narrations. The mood in noir films is often pessimistic, implying fear, treason or imminent danger.
The Color of Comics Exhibit
WE'RE STILL HERE:
WE'RE STILL HERE is an art exhibit organized after the election as a way for artists, activists, and anyone moved to participate to mobilize through the arts.
Alone and together, the works on view are a reminder that we have always been fighting, and assert that we are still here.
