Dir: Kent Jones





In 1962 Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for am exhaustive, week-long interview excavating the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema.

The results of their encounter became a book – the mythical Hitchcock/Truffaut – that was hailed as an eye-opening achievement, and became a key cinematic text for new directors.

Based on the original recordings of this meeting, Kent Jones’ film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plunges us into the world of the creator of PsychoThe Birds and Vertigo, elucidated by the leading filmmakers of today. Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader all appear.
