Tech Noir meets ds106?

1 min read

Miles, his friend Andy, and I caught a rather clean, but brooding, 35MM print of The Empire Strikes Back (1980) at the Library of Congress, Packard Campus in Culpeper, VA last night. I got to thinking that Empire is very much inline with aesthetic of other tech noirs at the time. It got me thinking a potential theme for next semester's ds106 might be tech noir hosted by Dr. Oblivion. Here are the films I was thinking about including:

Admittedly, it's a bit 1980s guy teenager heavy. So help me out here, what am I missing? Or is this way too lopsided? If it's possible, I was thinking about turning the class into an irregular movie event at the ITCC, and use the building with Oblivion to have some fun :)
