Vertigo at Christie Pits Film Festival - Closing Night!
CPFF’s summer 2018 tour of "Cinematic Cities" around the world will come to a close with Alfred Hitchcock's indelible San Francisco thriller, VERTIGO! Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, VERTIGO captures the city of San Francisco like no other film. Former police detective Scottie Ferguson becomes obsessed with a mysterious woman who leads him in a dangerous game of cat and mouse through the city’s past and present that slowly spirals beyond his emotional control.
VERTIGO is paired with rising star local filmmaker Kazik Radwanski's film SCAFFOLD, a short documentary about recent immigrants to Toronto who break the routine of their scaffolding job by observing people in the neighbourhood below from their unique vantage point.
