RUI NOGUEIRA (Writer / Film Historian, France)

Rui Nogueira is the writer of “French director Jean-Pierre Melville” and will lecture about famous filmmaker.

Jean-Pierre Melville (1917- 1973) Though remembered now primarily for his intense, spare 1960s gangster films, French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Melville had a startlingly varied career, encompassing wartime dramas, psychosexual character studies, and a collaboration with Jean Cocteau.

Jean-Pierre Grumbach (he would eventually change his name to Melville to honor the American author of Moby Dick) fought during World War II, first in the French army and then in the Resistance; those experiences would often inspire his work to come.
