On the occasion of Cohen Media Group’s release of Kent Jones’s Hitchcock/Truffaut, join us for this two-day event featuring a sneak preview of Jones’s documentary, in which leading filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, James Gray, and Olivier Assayas unpack the legacy of François Truffaut’s canonical interview with Alfred Hitchcock, to be followed by a discussion with Jones about the book that helped to establish the Master of Suspense as the pantheon figure he is today. This event will also feature a selection of films directed by Hitchcock, adding up to what should be a can’t-miss celebration of one of cinema’s most towering artists.

Introduction by Kent JonesAs gripping and playful as any of Hitchcock’s best-known works, I Confess follows a Catholic priest (Montgomery Clift) who keeps a murderer’s confession to himself, with dangerous consequences.
Hitchcock’s penultimate silent film and one of the most mature works of his early career follows two childhood friends living in a secluded Isle of Man fishing community and locked in a heartbreaking love triangle with the daughter of a puritanical Methodist.
Made shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hitchcock’s first feature with an all-American cast is a cross-country wartime thriller of imposing set pieces, whose box-office success secured the filmmaker’s foothold in Hollywood for the iconic films to come.
More graphic than Psycho following the relaxed censorship of the ’70s, Hitchcock returned to England to have morbid fun with a cast of character actors and the story of a sex killer at large, deploying his iconic The Wrong Man plot last time one last time.
