Shadow Play

Dark desires, shady figures and girls with guns. This series zigs and zags through films that explore the shadowy side of life. From classic Hollywood noirs to free-form French New Wave creations and the paranoid 1970s visions of New Hollywood Cinema, all the way to slick 1980s neo-noir and the bombastic crime capers of the 1990s, join us every weekend in winter as we pay a playful tribute to the booze hounds, femme fatales, shaggy dogs and private eyes of cinema.
