Double Feature!
Introduction by Universal Pictures preservationist Janice Simpson. Discussion following HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT with director Kent Jones.
2015, Cohen Media Group, 79 min, USA/France, Dir: Kent Jones

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting - used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut - this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of PSYCHO, THE BIRDS, and VERTIGO. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader. “A film buff’s nirvana ... A resourceful, illuminating and very welcome documentation both of filmmaking and the making of history.” - Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.

1942, Universal, 108 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock transfers the successful formula of his British films to Hollywood by telling yet another story of a falsely accused man on the run. This time it’s Robert Cummings as Barry Kane, an aircraft worker who is blamed for an explosion at his factory. As Kane hunts down the real saboteurs, Hitchcock uses his familiar chase structure to justify slyly satirical musings on patriotism and its flipside, paranoid ideas that culminate in the wonderful climax set on top of the Statue of Liberty. Norman Lloyd co-stars as one of the most wickedly engaging villains in the Hitchcock oeuvre.
