The Big Heat + Post-screening Discussion

A police detective whose wife was killed by the mob teams with a scarred gangster’s moll to bring down a powerful criminal. Named after criminal code for a police crackdown, Fritz Lang’s The Big Heat is one of the masterpieces of film noir. Incredibly violent for the time, the film features an early performance from Lee Marvin as a menacing, psychotic hood.

Event details

The screening on Sun 4 Jun will be accompanied by a free, informal post-screening discussion led by Maggie Hoffgen, Freelance Film Educator.
