Spring Films

Suspense under the Sun

We love our film noir at the NCMA, but sometimes we shiver in broad daylight. This spring we present malevolent stories that unfold in sunlit settings rather than in the shadows of classic noir. These films take place in a Spanish bullring, in everyday small towns in the U.S. and the U.K., and in the heat of the Italian summer. You can pull the shades, but you can’t hide.

Most films are introduced by NCMA film curator Laura Boyes.

Make it a night out and add dinner at Iris or a glass of wine and a small plate in West Building before your movie.
