About the Event

An intriguing study of obsession, Rear Window tells the story of L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries, a temporarily wheelchair-bound photographer who uses his recovery time to spy on the tenants of other apartments, witnessing a murder through his own rear window.

Hitchcock’s use of camera angles draws viewers into the tantalizing world of voyeurism, making this classic thriller perhaps the single greatest metaphor for the cinema ever made.

Film introduction by Wayne Beach who is Chair of the film program at Maine Media Workshops. In addition to being a professional screenwriter, Wayne contributed to film history by discovering Alfred Hitchcock's earliest-known attempt to write a screenplay.
