      Film Appreciation: How WWII Refugees Gave Us Film Noir

      Verge’s education program is excited to welcome more disciplines with this short lecture and film series with Richard St. Ofle which explores Film Noir as a genre sprung from displaced people in the build-up and aftermath of WWII.

      This will be a film-watching and lecture series in which we explore the themes, content, origins, production history, and context of some of the films from the ‘classic noir’ period. This course will argue that the traumatic experience of exile and homelessness created a uniquely American film genre.

      About the instructor:

      Richard St.Ofle is a graduate of Berkeley’s prestigious film and rhetoric program, and USC’s screenwriting program. His work has been featured in the Sacramento International Film Festival, and you can find his movie reviews semi-occasionally in Submerge magazine. His Berkeley thesis explored Film Noir and how it mobilized post-war American xenophobia, and his own work, including a TV Pilot being developed for HBO, usually involves something terrible happening to someone really nice.
