Agreed about getting the film screened in a neo-noir context--will talk with some of my contacts about this idea. Would be interesting to mix together neo-noirs from the late 60s-to-late 70s from around the world to show the range and continuity of that material.
UCLA put it into a series last year [see link below] but it was (IMO) too American-centric an approach to break any new ground. https://www.cinema.ucla.edu/events/2017/opening-wednesday-shadow-cinema-1970s
Feel free to suggest titles that fit the concept I am tossing out there--collective wisdom is always the best!
