Writing in Shadows and Fog
Terry Allen (Keynote Address)
The French named it “film noir” or “black film”. The style was a kind of tone poem, a poem of complexity, ambiguity and style. Great writers of classic noir had to work within the production code and figure out subtle ways of conveying all the sexuality, greed and lust of a dark world through innuendo, double entendre, nuance and humor. Even today, there’s something special going on in noir and there’s a lot to learn from the masters of darkness and light.
