One of the most important and legendary conversations in the history of film took place over several days in 1962, when the French New Wave auteur François Truffaut interviewed Alfred Hitchock about the breadth of his landmark career. The ensuing book that Truffaut wrote has been taught in film schools ever since, and now it’s finally been lovingly brought to life as a movie. Film historian and director Kent Jones (also at TCFF 2018 with Diane)—along with a truly epic collection of tour guides including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Wes Anderson, Richard Linklater, and Michigan native Paul Schrader—takes us on a deep dive into Hitchcock's unrivaled catalog that will do nothing less than change the way you view film.
