The Genius of Hitchcock Press Launch

BFI Creative Director Heather Stewart introduces The Genius of Hitchcock, our major project celebrating the work of the most influential and iconic British film director of all time.

As part of the celebrations we have been restoring his nine surviving silent feature films and commissioning new scores for each. BFI Head curator Robin Baker joins the composers of five of the films to discuss their work - Neil Brand (Blackmail), Mira Calix (Champagne), Daniel Patrick Cohen (The Pleasure Garden), Soweto Kinch (The Ring) and Nitin Sawhney (The Lodger).
