Opening Night introduced by Guy Maddin, Galen Johnson and Evan Johnson.

The Green Fog pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s spellbinding classic Vertigo. Inventive and invigorating, this “San Francisco Fantasia” is lauded by the New York Times as “a marvel of film scholarship.” It’s also a lot of fun. Maddin, working with his Forbidden Room collaborators, set himself the challenge to remake Vertigo without using footage from the Hitchcock classic, creating a “parallel-universe version,” in his words. Using Bay Area footage from a variety of sources—studio classics, ‘50s noir, experimental films, and ‘70s prime-time TV—and employing Maddin’s mastery of assemblage, the result exerts the inexorable pull of Hitchcock’s tale of erotic obsession while paying tribute to the city of San Francisco. Featuring a score by composer Jacob Garchik and Kronos Quartet.

Reviews

A dazzling exercise in found footage…a love letter to Hitchcock’s Vertigo and the city of San Francisco…rooftop chases, car pursuits, gallery viewings, cosmetic makeovers, pensive walks by the Golden Gate Bridge and much falling from high buildings are recreated through high and low art…Sources include Dark Passage, Bullitt, The Conversation, The Towering Inferno, Pacific Heights and San Andreas.
