Directed by Frtiz Lang | 1931 | 111min

A simple, haunting musical phrase whistled offscreen tells us that a young girl will be killed. “Who Is the Murderer?” pleads a nearby placard as serial killer Hans Beckert (Peter Lorre) closes in on little Elsie Beckmann . . .

In his harrowing masterwork M, Fritz Lang combines direct social commentary with chilling suspense, creating a panorama of private madness and public hysteria that to this day remains the blueprint for the psychological thriller. Smokescreen brings to life iconic and influential films from the history of cinema. In 2018, Smokescreen will be exploring a series of 10 films, each a classic in the sense that each of them is timeless, universal and archetypal.

Originally a Thursday night institution, Smokescreen moved to Saturday afternoons at 4pm last year, marking the beginning of a new and ongoing partnership with the Old Bank Bar & Restaurant. Filmgoers are now invited to meet at the Old Bank after the conclusion of Smokescreen for a lively discussion about the film and a free standard drink.
