We invite you to a day with the master film maker led by our guest speaker, Ian Haydn Smith, who will introduce you to one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of cinema.
Name a Hitchcock film. The 39 Steps (1935), The Lady Vanishes (1938), Rebecca (1940), Notorious (1946), Strangers on a Train (1951), Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959), Psycho (1960), The Birds (1963), Marnie (1964), Family Plot (1976). Easy, isn’t it?
Alfred Hitchcock remains one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of cinema. He is also one of its greatest entertainers. That he is viewed so admiringly by audiences and critics alike is a testament to his understanding that film is both an art and an industry. To watch a Hitchcock film is to be thrilled by its suspense and informed by its ingenuity.
Ian is a London-based writer. He is Editor of Curzon Magazine and co-author of 'New British Cinema: From Submarine to 12 Years a Slave’. Ian has visited us at New Park on previous occasions, especially to give talks at the Summer Film Festival. We are delighted to welcome Ian as the speaker on this day course which will feature many excerpts from Hitchcock films, informative discussion and lively debate. We hope you will leave with a real understanding of why Hitchcock is key to an understanding of the history of cinema.
