Created from eight Alfred Hitchcock classics, “A North Window for the Man With Vertigo” takes a vast step into exploring ways of using material that usually is not visible.
Only the very edges of the movies are used, edges one usually never sees, or atleast never thinks very much about while viewing the original movie. A regular TV-monitor generally always crops the image on the inside of the parts used.
In “A North Window for the Man With Vertigo” these extremely forgotten parts create the whole image, which becomes almost entirely abstract, and in constant transformation. The images, as well as the sound, take on a life of their own.
