Pittsburgh has recently been called `the most liveable city in America' - yet the old image of smoky skies and steel mills spewing forth grit has never quite disappeared. Its history as a dirty industrial centre is part of its inhabitants - and part of their toughness. The people of the steel city fight. What is Pittsburgh to noir and noir to Pittsburgh? It certainly has its rough streets and grisly murders. But dark crime stories depend on something in addition to killing. In PITTSBURGH NOIR, the real story is the dark underbelly of existence.
