Alfred Hitchcock,
the master of the cinema

Hélène Deschamps, Pierre-Luc Granjon
By making films of stories of crimes and murders, Hitchcock enjoys himself making us afraid, but also making us laugh, as for him laughter and fear go together. With his genius for suspense and special effects, Hitchcock deserves the name of master.
  • Hélène Deschamps After getting her DEA (Masters of research) in cinema, Hélène Deschamps wrote a book on L’Amour fou by Jacques Rivette. Today she is a projectionist and conveyor in cinema: with her caravan, she goes from class to class talking about cinema to children and leading workshops to make them see the images from the other side… Hélène adores the films of Pierre-Luc Granjon!

  • Pierre-Luc Granjon Director, scriptwriter, director of photography, set designer… Pierre-Luc Granjon has multiple talents and makes wonderful cartoon films such as La Grosse bête (les Décadrés), L’Automne de Pougne, L’Eté de Boniface, Le Printemps de Mélie, L’Hiver de Léon (Folimage), Le loup blanc (Sacrebleu Production), etc.
