NAGB Film Series presents "The Third Man"

On Thursday, April 12th at 8 p.m. the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas says farewell to guest volunteer film programmer Francis Litzinger with a special presentation of his favourite film, The Third Man (1949), directed by British filmmaker Carol Reed.

Considered by many critics as one of the greatest films of all time, features a tragic love story deliciously wrapped in a tale of deception and murder.

An impossibly charismatic Orson Welles plays Harry Lime, the creation of British novelist Graham Greene, who co-wrote the screenplay with Welles and Reed. 

But it’s the city of post-war Vienna that’s the true star of this influential film that, like Casablanca and other classics, has managed to grow in stature year after year.

“As a film programmer I’ve seen thousands of films in my lifetime and very few stay with me the way this film has. Every time I watch it, which is at least once or twice a year, I see something new. It’s become a reliable friend that never disappoints,” says Francis.

It’s a bittersweet film for a bittersweet night as Francis ends his guest programming stint and the NAGB embarks on a new film programme presented in co-operation with the British Council.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see a classic film presented un-cut and restored. RSVP on facebook here.
