Katzen Cinema Series: Double Take
Wednesday, April 17, 7 p.m.
American University Museum, Katzen Arts Center
Admission is free

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 films against the climate of Cold War-era political anxiety. Taking inspiration from a short story written by Jorge Luis Borges and using a meticulous array of archival footage, director Grimonprez traces the global rise of fear as a commodity, examining modern history through the lens of mass media, advertising, and Hollywood.
