GRIMONPREZ’ DOUBLE TAKE + DIAL H-I-S-T-O-R-Y +
In its Bay Area theatrical premiere, acclaimed Belgian director Johan Grimonprez casts Alfred Hitchcock as a paranoid history professor unwittingly caught up in a “double take” on the Cold War period, targeting the global rise of “fear-as-commodity.” Subverting a marvelous array of TV footage, Grimonprez traces Catastrophe Culture’s relentless assault on the home, from the inception of televised images to our present-day zapping neurosis. PLUS: Grimonprez’ first feature, dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y, a Don DeLillo-penned freefall through history in which archival footage of jet hijackings is collaged with surreal ‘70s ephemera, banal disco riffs, and David Shea’s superb remixed soundtrack. *Doors at 7:30 for season-opening champagne reception; showtime is 8pm.
