Film Noir Series with David Abrams

Film Noir Series

Butte-Silver Bow Public library is sponsoring a Film Noir series on Wednesday evenings February 28 through April 11. We’ll start each film with a commentary from enthusiast David Abrams. Things will get underway at 5:30. In these 7 weeks, we’ll explore this genre with a few classics and a few lesser known works. Come explore these films with us! Please check out our website for a special introduction to the series by Abrams and a schedule of films.

BSBPL hosts First Fridays, an informational noontime series on the first Friday in the Big Butte room on the third floor of the library. In the tradition of the Westside Shakespeare Club (a Chautauqua here in Butte), First Fridays is dedicated to exploring our world, our history, and literary works. Please join us each month for a lecture, documentary, or discussion. Bring your curiosity.

Our March session will feature a screening of the documentary of Black Code. From the publisher’s website: In this gripping documentary, filmmaker Nicholas de Pencier (Four Wings and a Prayer, Watermark) examines the complex global impact that the internet has had on matters of free speech, privacy and activism. Based on the book by Ron Deibert, Black Code is the story of how the internet is being controlled and manipulated by governments across the world in order to censor and monitor their citizens. As they battle for control of cyberspace, ideas of citizenship, privacy and democracy are challenged to the core.
