A fictional Alfred Hitchcock narrates an explanation of some of the lesser known cinematic techniques he used in his movies, richly illustrated with clips from his entire 50-year career. Directed by Mark Cousins, My Name is Alfred Hitchcock re-examines the vast filmography and legacy of one of the 20th century’s greatest filmmakers, Alfred Hitchcock, through a new lens: through the auteur’s own voice.  

This brilliant documentary kick starts our Hitchcock Week and is essential viewing for anyone interested in the history of cinema and classical Hollywood - and a great taster for the first of our upcoming regular Wednesday course nights: 'Everything you ever wanted to know about Hitchcock (but were afraid to ask!)'.

"Only a cinephile as passionate as Mark Cousins could have got away with this film, in all its hilarious presumption and cheek...there is so much to learn and enjoy. You come away from it with your senses fine-tuned" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
