Description

Hitchcock/Truffaut by Kent Jones (2015, 79 min.)
In French with English subtitles
With guest speaker Mimi Plauché, Chicago International Film Festival

François Truffaut once interviewed Alfred Hitchcock over 8 days in 1962 Hollywood and then published Cinema According to Hitchcock. The critically acclaimed cinematic version of this book highlights both iconic directors' legendary ideas and filmmaking experiences, and includes commentary from contemporary directors and filmmakers such as Amaud Desplechin, Olivier Assayas, Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson. A must watch for all film buffs!

Part of "Our World, Our Lives" - A documentary series.

At a time when alternative facts are all the rage, we return to cinéma-vérité and the documentary form at large to examine the world we live in and the people we live with.

Revisit works by seasoned French directors, such as New Wave's Agnès Varda, and discover some of the best of a booming new generation of filmmakers consistently singled out for praise by the international press.

Don't miss out on young Chicago filmmakers with a selection of short documentaries curated by the Chicago International Film Festival and presented prior to each feature. Join our guest speakers as they shed light on facts often stranger than fiction and become a critic during our post-screening discussions

Are you ready? Because anything can happen when you walk out, camera in hand, to meet reality…
