A free series of films by Alfred Hitchcock who used film to explore his own neuroses and phobias, in the process revealing the psychological complexities we all share.

A seminal film for Hitchcock both artistically and thematically, Notorious stars Ingrid Bergman as the “kept woman” of a cultured sophisticate (Claude Rains) who after World War II has relocated with his fellow Nazis to Brazil. She is recruited by a cynical American agent (Cary Grant) to inform on her lover, thus putting her life in danger. What’s more, both men are in love with her.

Not Rated: 101 minutes (1946)

Post-screening conversation led by psychoanalyst Marilyn Metzl, Ph.D., and UMKC’s Thom Poe, Ph.D.
