Underworld (1927, USA) by Josef von Sternberg (81’)
Presentation: Santos Zunzunegui
Recognised as the first great gangster movie, it tells the story of the main character’s escape from jail and his reunion with his lover and his accomplice, whom he thought had betrayed him. He will finally have to face the police, who besiege him in his bulletproof hideout, where he is depicted as a tragic antihero with a certain romantic aura.
On Saturday, the video of the presentation recorded the day before will be shown.
