A new documentary about Alfred Hitchcock is on the way, and here’s the trailer for My Name Is Alfred Hitchcock.

Alfred Hitchcock is one of only a handful of directors whose oeuvre is so influential it has come to define an entire genre. My Name Is Alfred Hitchcock will examine his legacy as a filmmaker:

2022 marks the hundred-year anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock’s first feature – Number 13 (1922). A century on, Hitchcock remains one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of cinema. But how does his vast body of work and legacy hold up in today’s society? Mark Cousins, the award-winning filmmaker behind many other iconic cinema history documentaries, 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 & 60s and his later works – in playful and revealing ways.

Cousins is well versed in documentaries about cinema, having previously directed the epic Story Of Film, amongst others.

My Name Is Alfred Hitchcock will be released in UK cinemas and on demand on the 21st July.
