We are delighted to welcome special guest Alistair McGowen to introduce and close the film and give some unique insights into the films production and creation.

This special event is in association with the Inward Eye Film Festival, the screening will act as a place holder for the return of the festival, which we will be bringing back to Zeffirellis in 2024.

Directed by Mark Cousins, MY NAME IS ALFRED HITCHCOCK re-examines the vast filmography and legacy of one of the 20th century’s greatest filmmakers, Alfred Hitchcock, through a new lens: through the auteur’s own voice.

Mark Cousins, the award-winning filmmaker behind THE STORY OF FILM: AN ODYSSEY, THE EYES OF ORSON WELLES and THE STORY OF FILM: A NEW GENERATION tackles this question and looks at the auteur with a new and radical approach: through the use of his own voice. As Hitchcock rewatches his films, we are taken on an odyssey through his vast career - his vivid silent films, the legendary films of the 1950s and 60s and his later works - in playful and revealing ways.
