As the second showing of the film series "The American Gangster Film," Fulbright Professor Barry Laga invited students, scholars and the broader community to a public screening of the 1967 classic Bonnie and Clyde.

After the film, Professor Laga lead a lively discussion in order to explore different peculiarities of the gangster film genre of the 1960s.

Questions included,
How is violence represented in the film?
How are the political and social circumstances of the 60s reflected in the film?
And, how did the gangster film genre change aesthetically since the 30s?

We are looking forward to continuing the series after the winter break with the following screenings:

January, 8th, 2014: Scarface (1983)

January 22nd, 2014: Pulp Fiction (1994)
