Come and enjoy the film with a brief discussion to follow moderated by Peter Kramer, of The Journal News.

Hitchcock/Truffaut
Jacob Burns, Peekskill [link]
Q&A Feb 12: filmmaker Kent Jones
2015. 80 m. Kent Jones. Cohen Media Group. PG-13.

n 1962, Alfred Hitchcock (North by Northwest, Psycho) and a 30-year-old François Truffaut (The 400 Blows, Shoot the Piano Player) sequestered themselves in a windowless Hollywood office for a weeklong conversation. The result: the seminal book published a half century ago, that dissects every film Hitchcock had made until that point—after Hitchcock's death, Truffaut went back and released an updated edition covering Hitchcock's final few films—that illuminated his masterful techniques, made the case for the popular director as more than just an entertainer, but a serious artist, and influenced generations of filmmakers to follow. In the fascinating documentary of the same name, filmmaker Kent Jones (A Letter to Elia) brings "the Bible of Cinema" to invigorating life as he combines audio captured during the now famous conversation with new interviews from filmmakers whose work and love of cinema has been profoundly influenced by Hitchcock's films. Featuring talks with Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas), David Fincher (The Social Network), Richard Linklater (Boyhood), Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Olivier Assayas (Clouds of Sils Maria), Paul Schrader (Hardcore), and many others, Hitchcock/Truffaut is essential viewing for every fan of Alfred Hitchcock's stunning, masterful body of work.
To continue the celebration of Hitchcock's work, we will be screening three of his biggest classics:
Vertigo on 2/15
Psycho on 2/16
The Birds on 2/17.
