LOCALLY-made feature films are few and far between in Perth – but that didn’t stop producer Nate Strider-Knight from putting his all into creating a 1940s noir film with a modern edge.

The Silent City follows Detective Martin Cole who, after becoming disillusioned with the police, makes it his personal mission to eradicate all criminals.

But when he meets the elusive Rose Langley, he embarks on a quest to uncover the mystery of a valuable heirloom which quickly escalates into a game of cat and mouse, matched with murder and intrigue.

In a bid to ensure his actors get paid, Strider-Knight is holding a fundraiser at Event Cinemas Innaloo on November 7 featuring the film’s trailer – the only time it will be made public – followed by a digitally remastered version of the 1974 film noir classic Chinatown with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway.

Shot in black and white, film noir is a cinematic term used to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those emphasising cynical attitudes and sexual motivations.

“The Silent City uses modern and classic noir elements to create a moving, dramatic and intriguing film,” Strider-Knight said.

“My room-mates Matt Soutar (writer and director) and Marcelle Weber (executive producer) initially approached me with a short script to produce and I read it and loved the story.

“I knew I was busy studying film producing full-time at Central TAFE but decided to take on the project.

“As time went by, the script became bigger because Matt kept writing and eventually I told him to make it a feature-length film, which he did.”

Shot on locations around Perth, Fremantle, Midland and Belmont, the project was not without its challenges – the main one being a lack of funding.

“I paid for almost everything out of my own pocket,” Strider-Knight said. “We missed the funding deadlines when this project came to my attention but, instead of waiting a year, I decided to go head on and make it happen.

“Two weeks into pre-production I discovered one of our main actors was going overseas in three weeks so I had to scramble and get all his scenes locked in, including filming the movie’s finale and securing many locations in a short period of time.

“I didn’t have a production or location manager so it was hectic but it worked out in the end and everything was organised in time.”

The Silent City fundraising event is at 6pm, November 7, at Event Cinemas Innaloo. A silent auction will be held before the film and a licensed bar will also be open.

Tickets are $25, plus booking fee – go to our website for details.

Event Cinemas Innaloo is at 57 Liege Street, off Scarborough Beach Road.
