About the event
Spotlight Series: Director Christopher Nolan
Christopher Nolan CBE is a British-American filmmaker known for his lucrative Hollywood blockbusters
with complex storytelling. Nolan is considered a leading filmmaker of the 21st century, as well as a director who pushes the boundaries of what can be done in live action, from the semi-truck flip in The Dark
Knight to the Tesseract scene in Interstellar. Choosing to do as much as he can in camera instead of just
relying on CGI sets him apart from his film-making competition; his films will go down in history as
groundbreaking, beautiful and ambitious.
Gold Junction Presents has selected four films which highlight Nolan's career, illustrate his talent, and display his ambitious drive to shoot everything on camera, veering away from CGI. These films are remarkable and undeniably beautiful to see on a big screen.
Join us March 9, 2023 at 6:30 PM to view The Dark Knight. Learn more about this film below in a behind-the-scenes look.
The Dark Knight (2008)
Synopsis: “With the help of allies Lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and DA Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman (Christian Bale) has been able to keep a tight lid on crime in Gotham City. But when a vile young criminal calling himself the Joker (Heath Ledger) suddenly throws the town into chaos, the caped Crusader begins to tread a fine line between heroism and vigilantism.”
The semi-truck flip in The Dark Night is one of the memorable scenes in the film. The scene itself took months of preparation and testing, which perfected the truck flipping head over heal; the shot also determined the best angle shot for one the most jawdropping scenes in cinema. The shot shows Nolan's dedication to realism and storytelling, and highlights his desire to give the audience the best visual experience possible.
