On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Alfred Hitchcock classic, Vertigo, filmmaker and cultural historian Guy Maddin honors the enduring classic with The Green Fog.

The Green Fog, created by Maddin with co-directors Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson, and composer Jacob Garchik and Kronos Quartet, pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s spellbinding Vertigo without using footage from the Hitchcock classic, creating a “parallel-universe version.” 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 also paying tribute to the city of San Francisco.
