The Farmington Cinematheque Series presents Hitchcock/Truffaut in the Little Theatre. Based on the original recordings of this meeting, used to produce the seminal book Hitchcock/Truffaut, this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plunges us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo.
In 1962, Francois Truffaut persuaded Alfred Hitchcock to sit with him for a week-long interview in which the great British auteur would share with his young admirer the secrets of his cinema. Hitchcock’s singular vision is elucidated and brought vividly to life by today’s leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich, and Paul Schrader.
The Farmington Cinematheque Series is sponsored by the San Juan College Henderson Fine Arts Center, the San Juan College Library and KSJE Radio. It features documentaries and independent films not released on a national level.
