BLUE DAYS, BLACK NIGHTS: THE SPRING 2017 YOUTH CLASS

SPRING 2017:  9 consecutive Saturdays beginning March 4, 10 am – Noon
“It began last May. About the end of May, it was. I had to run out to Glendale to deliver a policy on some dairy trucks. On the way back I remembered this auto renewal on Los Feliz. So I decided to run over there. It was one of those California Spanish houses everyone was nuts about 10 or 15 years ago. This one must have cost somebody about 30,000 bucks — that is, if he ever finished paying for it… It was mid-afternoon, and it’s funny, I can still remember the smell of honeysuckle all along that block. I felt like a million. There was no way in all this world I could have known that murder sometimes can smell like honeysuckle…” 

This Spring, the EPFC Youth Class explores LA Noir, the classic film genre with roots in a vanished Los Angeles. We’ll be looking at clips from classic films, checking out downtown’s changing urban landscape, and making our very own 21st century noir using Bolex 16mm cameras. This class is open to youth 12-19 years old; all equipment, materials and instruction provided FREE by EPFC!

Instructors: Gemma Jimenez, Shauna McGarry and Cosmo Segurson

A mandatory orientation session for all interested students and their parent/guardian takes place at EPFC on Tuesday, February 28th at 7 pm.

Bookings are closed for this event.
