Fulbright Professor Barry Laga concluded his screening series "The American Gangster Film" with Tarantino's classic Pulp Fiction.

Again, many students have found their way to the Institute for American Studies and shared their  thoughts in a lively discussion about the peculiarites of postmodern filmmaking and Pulp Fiction's depiction of violence.

With its high degree of gangster film intertextuality, Pulp Fiction proved to be the perfect film to finish the screening series.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the last few weeks, the screening series has been a great success and gave an interesting insight into the genre of the gangster film and how it has evolved since the 1920s.
