Casting a Shadow: Creating the Alfred Hitchcock Film

An exhibition, Casting a Shadow: Creating the Alfred Hitchcock Film, runs through Dec. 9 at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University, 40 Arts Circle Drive inĀ Evanston.

Alfred Hitchcock presented himself as the sole author of his films, and his movies were the direct translation of his creative genius to the screen.

In reality, however, Hitchcock was a deeply collaborative artist, working intensely with actors, producers, cinematographers, screenwriters, editors, and production and sound designers to create what the public knew as "an Alfred Hitchcock film."

Through drawings, paintings, storyboards, and production documents, this exhibition explores a film making process that thrived on teamwork. For more information, call 847-491-4000 or visit the museum website.
