The slideshow featured in the Guardian(UK) is an extension of the film festival titled “Birds Eye View” and in particular the BFI’s Blonde Crazy season which is a complementary piece to the festival. One theme that was highlighted during this season at the BFI involved taking a look at Alfred Hitchcock’s Blonde. A featured presenter during this festival/season was Laura Mulvey, who composed the seminal essay, Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema in 1975 and is a leading authority in feminist film theory.
Here is a video from the BFI which offers a little more insight in to the Blonde Crazy season:
As I previously stated I am very interested in the aspect of this piece that primarily deals with Alfred Hitchcock. For those interested in academically studying this topic I promise that it is very fascinating.
