Hitchcock Lost and Found: The Forgotten Films
27th May 2015
Filmbase, Curved Street, Dublin 2
voicesonfilm and Film Ireland are hosting the Irish launch of Dr. Alain Kerzoncuf and Professor Charles Barr’s recently-published Hitchcock Lost and Found: The Forgotten Films. The launch follows ‘Cultivating Film-makers’, an open panel discussion considering the contemporary face of Third Level Film education in Ireland. Professor Charles Barr will be in attendance.
While recent books and articles discussing his life and work focus on the production and philosophy of Hitchcock’s iconic Hollywood-era films like Notorious (1946) and Vertigo (1958), Hitchcock Lost and Found moves beyond these seminal works to explore forgotten, incomplete, lost, and recovered productions from all stages of his career, including his early years in Britain.
All are welcome to attend both the panel and to celebrate the launch of this important contribution to the study of one of cinema’s most significant directors.
