By staff writer
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Gosh!TV) 2016/7/31 – Hitchcock/Truffaut, premiere on Aug. 8th, revisits a week-long 1962 conversation between Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock, in which the great British director discussed his career film-by-film with his young French counterpart. Based on the original recordings of this meeting, used to produce the seminal book Hitchcock, this film offers unique insights into Hitchcock’s mastery and influence on generations of filmmakers. Director Kent Jones illuminates Hitchcock’s singular vision through observations from some of today’s leading filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Richard Linklater and Paul Schrader. A remarkable cinema lesson, the film premieres in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the publication of Truffaut’s book, as well as Hitchcock’s birthday on Aug. 13th.
