On the one hand a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, on the other an investigation into a look-alike culture, Looking for Alfred is a witty and multi-levelled deconstruction of notions of reality. Focusing on Hitchcock's regular cameo appearances in each of his films, Looking for Alfred deploys a number of Hitchcock look-alikes to conjure up an unexpected narrative from Hitch's fifty-year history of walk-on parts. Shot amongst the atmospheric interiors of the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, this labyrinth of look-alikes and doubles combines Hitchcock's flair for cinematic suspense with a quiet and beguiling surrealism reminiscent of that other great modernist artist, Rene Magritte. Looking for Alfred is accompanied by two documentary items: an interview with Ron Burrage, the world's most famous Hitchcock look-alike, as well as an edit of the casting sessions. These three films together form the installation Looking for Alfred.
