Laurie Anderson's Pick for #FilmsOnTheGreen.

Port of Shadows (Quai Des Brumes)
Directed by Marcel Carné
With Jean Gabin, Michèle Morgan, Michel Simon
1938 | Drama-Romance | 1h31 | France | Rialto Pictures

Jean, an army deserter, hitchhikes his way into Le Havre looking for a place to hide until he can leave the country on one of the many ships anchored there. He never expects to become embroiled in a dispute between local “tough” guy Lucien and wealthy but shady shopkeeper Zabel. Nor does he expect to fall in love with the beautiful Nelly.

Films in French with English subtitles
Music by WNYU Radio DJ prior to the screening!
