Nocturne / Noir
Helen K. Garber's NoirFest Santa Monica is in full swing, starting this week (actually there was a big opening last Sat'dy night . . . well, we missed that one!) - with a full calendar of events running thru March 28, 2012. Included are a Spoken Word event tonight (!), a Film Screening of Farewell My Lovely (1975) on January 25, Wine Tasting on January 28, and our favorite: Night Photography at the Santa Monica Pier, February 4, 7, and 21, 2012 - part of a class offered by Otis College of Art & Design.
And like that . . . events throughout February and March, with a Closing Party on March 28th! All the details are at noirfestsm.com - The Inaugural Interactive Arts Festival Celebrating Noir as a Unifying Theme.
If you're in the neighborhood, you should try to make it to some part of this - it's an ambitious offering of complimentary events that Helen has delivered - all in the name of Noir!
