Synopsis: Critically lambasted and shunned by postwar French audiences upon its release in 1947, Julien Duvivier's "Panique" has since come to be recognized as a long-overlooked treasure of French film noir. The film was the first of several adaptations of "Mr. Hire's Engagement," one of the finest novels by legendary Belgian crime writer Georges Simenon, a coal-black tale of the scapegoating of the eccentric bachelor Mr. Hire. Following the murder of a woman in his Paris neighborhood, Mr. Hire has the double misfortune of knowing too much for his own good and falling for the real murderer's girlfriend.

A wine and cheese reception will follow the film.

Festival passes to all films and events are $35. Tickets and festival passes are available online or at the door.
