The founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation, Eddie Muller has been instrumental in preserving and promoting the art and legacy of film noir in the U.S. and around the world. This multimedia presentation will cover the history, aesthetics and lasting legacy of this Hollywood-grown cinematic movement, including clips from classic favorites and a few hidden gems.
A journalist, author, film historian and filmmaker, Muller, a self-described "noirchaeologist" has produced numerous fiction and nonfiction books on the world of film noir, including "Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir" and "Dark City Dames: The Wicked Women of Film Noir." He annually produces, programs and hosts Noir City: The San Francisco Film Noir Festival at San Francisco's Castro Theatre and affiliated festivals around the U.S. Since 2013, he has been an on-air host for TCM, most recently introducing the "Summer of Darkness" series of classic films noir.
