Special Screening: DC NOIR

Return to Virtual Cinema

  DC NOIR is a crime series set and filmed entirely in Washington, D.C., based on the short stories of acclaimed novelist and television producer/screenwriter George Pelecanos (HBO’s The Wire, The Deuce). Four distinct stories are set in various locations around the DC, and follow an array of characters living and struggling on the fringes of society. Pelecanos also makes his directorial debut on a brand new, never-before-seen original story entitled “The Lovers.”  The other episodes are directed by up-and-coming directors Nick Pelecanos, Gbenga Akinnagbe (actor, HBO’s The Deuce), and Stephen Kinigopoulos.  Q & A with George Pelecanos following screening.
