Rear Windows and Revolving Doors: Three By Hitchcock

Date: Saturday November 9, 2013, at 3 pm
Location: Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center

Admission: Free. Reservation required

The use of the window in Alfred Hitchcock's films is a constant trope. Rear Window epitomizes this fascination, but Hitchcock began using clear glass to explore interior space versus exterior space and what it symbolizes as early as 1926 in "The Lodger". Hitchcock's portrayal of windows enabled famed acts of voyeurism and illuminates the relationships between home and the outside world, self and other, and safety and peril. Complements the exhibition "At the Window: The Photographer's View".
