      Art & Politics Film Series: Vertigo

      A tale of suspense and terror weaves around a mysterious woman and retired police detective, Scottie Ferguson, who suffers from an extreme fear of heights and dizzying sense of instability, or vertigo. Hitchcock elicited similar feelings in audiences by pioneering "dolly zoom," a novel in-camera technique that distorts perspective. Shot on location in San Francisco, the dynamic vistas and multicultural history of the city propel the action of Hitchcock's masterpiece. A now-iconic film, Vertigo has long inspired discussion among critics about topics such as the male gaze, Jungian psychosis, and intertextual analysis between film and photography. The Art & Politics Film Series is organized by Robert Wiesenberger, the Clark's associate curator of contemporary projects and Horace Ballard, curator of American art at the Williams College Museum of Art. Each film begins with a brief introduction and is followed by light refreshments and conversation in the Manton Reading Room.
