Thane Rosenbaum, director of the Forum on Law, Culture & Society, provides a preview of the 2011 Forum Film Festival's final film, Fritz Lang’s “M.” This haunting 1931 thriller, starring Peter Lorre, is set against a massive German police investigation to catch a pedophile and child murderer that infringes on the dealings of the underworld and the legal system, igniting a mob-led manhunt. It is one of the most influential movies in film history, inspiring artists and architects as a city becomes a character in this story of legal and moral failure. Post-screening guests are award winning screenwriter and director Henry Bean, award-winning screenwriter and producer Larry A. Gross, and Sarah Williams Goldhagen, author and architecture critic for The New Republic.
