Summary: Johan Grimonprez’s ingenious documentary/fiction hybrid — a meditation on identity, filmmaking, power and paranoia — looks at Alfred Hitchcock’s late 50s and early 60s film against the climate of Cold War-era political anxiety. Using a meticulous array of archive footage – as well as a story by novelist Tom McCarthy about Hitchcock encountering his double during production of The Birds – Grimonprez traces the global rise of fear as a commodity, examining modern history through the lens of mass media, advertising and Hollywood.
