My Name Is Alfred Hitchcock (15) – SOLD OUT

An extra showing from the Oswestry Film Society – note 7pm start for this event.

In this critically acclaimed new film, the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock supposedly narrates from beyond the grave, using movie clips to reveal techniques and meanings in his work.

But the script is actually voiced by the comic impressionist Alistair McGowan, whose vocal copying of one of the most influential directors of all time is so eerily good that you’d think Hitchcock had been summoned up in some ghostly seance session.

In a career spanning six decades, many of his almost 60 films are still widely watched and studied today. 

As Hitchcock seemingly rewatches his own films, we are taken on a journey through his vast career – his vivid silent films, his 1930s and wartime movies, the legendary films of the 1950s and 60s, and all his later works – in playful and revealing ways.

The Oswestry Film Society is thrilled not only to stage this special showing of MY NAME IS ALFRED HITCHCOCK, but also that Alistair McGowan has agreed to come to the OFS as our special guest to talk afterwards about the film, its making, and the influence of Hitchcock himself.
