This 6 week class takes a deep dive into Alfred Hitchcock’s cinematic genius as we unpack his artistic mastery Take a deep dive into Alfred Hitchcock’s cinematic
genius as we unpack his artistic mastery and the fundamentals of his symbolic storytelling style. Our focus will be a fun and astute analysis of key repeating Hitchcock
motifs, meaningful camera shots, and pivotal scenes.. We’ll delve into each film’s mythic themes and archetypal elements, considering how they reflect Hitch’s own moral and psychological development. Exploring each film chronologically will underscore how film art reflects cultural history. Focusing on one of his most fertile periods – 1935 to 1951 – will highlight the
expressionist brilliance of Hitchcock in shimmering black and white. Includes Th e 39 Steps; Th e Lady Vanishes; Foreign Correspondent; Shadow of a Doubt; Notorious; Strangers on a Train. Th ought provoking film clips and illustrative camera shots will be presented. For a richer experience, we highly recommend watching the complete versions of these widely
available films before class.
These classes will be presented by Terry Ebinger, MS, practiced as a licensed psychotherapist and depth psychological educator before becoming a creative film scholar.
Her film classes are an exciting blend of film art, cultural history, archetypal psychology, and the symbolic language of cinema. She teaches at several Bay area Lifelong Learning Institutes, Santa Rosa Junior College, Cinema & Psyche, and the Movie of the Moon Club. www.cinemaandpsyche.com
