Alfred Hitchcock and the Art of Suspense

Hitchcock - LondonderryAlfred Hitchcock and the Art of Suspense
Friday, May 2 at 7:00 p.m.
Depot Visitors Center, 34 West River Street, South Londonderry, VT
Hitchcock famously said “Some films are slices of life; mine are slices of cake.” His career spanned forty years and many film eras. Film expert Rick Winston will discuss the evolution of Hitchcock’s craft, exploring his favorite themes, his relationship with his collaborators, and his wry sense of humour no matter how grisly the subject matter. By drawing on twelve film clips, starting with his 1925 silent The Lodger and continuing through to his Hollywood classics such as Notorious and Rear Window, Winston will illuminate the arc of Hitchcock’s brilliant career.
