The Criminal Element

Series: Repressed Cinema

A 16mm short film program, curated by film collector Ian Sundahl, focusing on the theme of crime.

Films include: one of the earliest 'epic' narratives ever made - THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY (1903), a look at vandalism with 1960's youth in "VANDALISM: FUN OR DUMB?" (a film that was seen briefly playing in the 1979 feature OVER THE EDGE), and a bizarre one-of-a kind interview of a real-life career telephone box lock picker confessing to the police his methods and techniques. Also in the show are an unusual student-made film about robbing banks, and a 1950's intense crime drama TV show. Lots of variety in the films in this program, many of which are not available to be seen elsewhere else!

Underground Comix for sale in the lobby as usual.
