Alfred Hitchcock retrospective at the Cinémathèque Française
North by Northwest (1959)
In this digital era, the Cinemathèque Française invites us to plunge into the conventions of classic film screenings, and to rediscover the full extent of the manipulative power of Hitchcock’s camera. A generous program of screenings and conferences retraces the exceptional history of the ‘master of suspense’, considered as one of the most emblematic figures of world cinema. The program is split into three cycles: his early films, produced in England (1925-1939), including his first true feature film The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934) and The 39 Steps (1935); his American period (1940-1954) with The Lady Vanishes (1938), The Wrong Man (1956) and Notorious (1945); maturity (1954-1976) with masterpieces like Rear Window (1954), North by Northwest (1959), Vertigo (1958), Psycho (1960), The Birds (1963), Marnie (1964) and Family Plot (1976).
