Thanks to the very generous folk at Curious, we’ve got some double passes to give away for the upcoming release of Kent Jones’ HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT. The film opens on 29 September.
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: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader.
Hitchcock/Truffaut will play select sessions at:
- Rialto Cinemas, Newmarket, Auckland, from 29 September
- Rialto Cinemas, Dunedin, from 29 September
- Alice Cinematheque, Christchurch, from 13 October
- The Roxy Cinema, Wellington, from 13 October
