Screenings and Panels @ Centennial Hall

4:15 PM – EUROCRIME! THE ITALIAN COP & GANGSTER FILMS THAT RULED THE 70'S



A documentary concerning the violent Italian 'poliziotteschi' cinematic movement of the 1970s which, at first glance, seem to be rip-offs of American crime films like DIRTY HARRY or THE GODFATHER, but which really address Italian issues like the Sicilian Mafia and red terrorism. Perhaps even more interesting than the films themselves were the rushed methods of production (stars performing their own stunts, stealing shots, no live sound) and the bleed-over between real-life crime and movie crime.

6:35 PM – OUR DEVIL'S NIGHT

A family consisting of a young woman, her cousin and their grandpa are going on a wicked Halloween party to wreak some havoc. Meanwhile a mental patient has escaped from the looney bin and is slowly moving around the town's darkest corners, meeting the strangest figures the night has to offer, while on his own personal quest.

A Q&A WITH DIRECTOR MICHAEL MAGGOT and GRINDHOUSE MAESTRO JOEL M. REED WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER THE FILM.
