Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock (USA, 1958, 128 min.). In Hitchcock’s classic story of obsession, manipulation and fear, detective ‘Scottie’ Ferguson (James Stewart) is forced to retire after his fear of heights causes the death of a fellow officer and the girl he was hired to follow. When he sees the girl’s double (Kim Novak), a cycle of madness and lies ensues. Stunningly beautiful, Vertigo is an intense psychological study of the twisted psyche of a desperate, insecure man.
Vertigo will be screened on 35mm film.
