Film, Lectures & Conferences
The films of director Alfred Hitchcock have long fascinated psychoanalysts as well as the general public-- and none more than his 1958 masterpiece "Vertigo." Part film noir, part detective thriller, and above all a psychological study of obsession, "Vertigo" contains not only Hitchcock’s most revolutionary cinematography but also a wonderfully complex hero who viewers will want to put on the couch.
Please view the film in advance, it will not be shown at the event.
