2016 CinéCola / Tournées French Film Festival : ARMY OF SHADOWS
Columbia College presents the film, In Army of Shadows (1969), November 29th from 7 – 9:30 p.m., at the Spears Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall. Jean-Pierre Melville, master of the French noir, takes the atmospheric style and cool efficiency of his gangster classics Le Doulos and Le Samouraï and applies them to the French Resistance, following Resistance leader Philippe Gerbier (in a powerfully understated performance by the legendary Lino Ventura) as he escapes from the Gestapo and sets about rebuilding his network. In French, with English subtitles. Sponsored by CinéCola: Columbia Community French & Francophone Film Festival. Free.
