Hitchcock in Transition, 1925-1936
2 April – 21 May 2014
Tutor: Martin Carter, Sheffield Hallam University

A new Film Studies season showing how Alfred Hitchcock dealt with the challenges of moving from silent cinema to sound. This selection of his films from the late 1920s through to the 1930s will illustrate how adept Hitchcock was at mastering advances in cinema technology and how his early British films display stylistic and thematic traits that would regularly reappear throughout his career. These films will show how Hitchcock not only mastered the use of synchronous sound but also established himself as the master of suspense.
