Cry of the City
noirist Robert Siodmak directed this gritty crime drama about two childhood
best friends who take divergent paths: one becomes a cop (Victor Mature);
the other, a cop killer (Richard Conte). The killer must grapple with
confessing to a murder he did not commit in order to save his girlfriend
from being framed for the crime. Shot mostly on location in New York
City, the film features a thrilling score by Alfred Newman and is based
on a masterful script by uncredited screenwriter Ben Hecht.
The Jewish Museum and the Film Society of LINCOLN Center will present the 24th annual New York Jewish Film Festival at the Film Society's Walter Reade Theater and Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, January 14-29, 2015. The festival's 47 features and shorts from 11 countries-21 screening in their world, U.S., or New York premieres-provide a diverse global perspective on the Jewish experience.
The festival includes a number of "beyond the screen" programs, including a presentation of the work of artist Keren Cytter followed by a discussion with Jens Hoffmann, Deputy Director, Exhibitions and Public Programs, the Jewish Museum; continuous screenings of trailers from films noirs; an EXHIBITION of posters for antiwar movies; a midnight showing of the 1980s break-dancing hit, Breakin'; Talking Movies, panel discussions about Zionism and antiwar films; a master class on filmmaking with Susan Korda; and a special screening of the late Mike Nichols's 1996 comedy, The Birdcage. A 25th-anniversary screening of Jennie Livingston's Paris Is Burning will be accompanied by two other films selected by the director.
