Arts preview: Hitchcock/Truffaut at the Wexner Center

Jim Fischer

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and a 30-year-old François Truffaut ("400 Blows," "Jules and Jim") locked themselves away in a drab Hollywood office for a weeklong conversation about filmmaking and cinema.

This Kent Jones documentary is based on the original transcripts of those meetings, offering a unique look into Hitchcock's art in his own words as well of those of many of today's leading filmmakers and Hitchcock disciples.

Jones, also the director of the New York Film Festival and deputy editor of "Film Comment," will introduce the Friday screening.
