SPACE & CINEMA

LISBON

At the International Conference on Space and Cinema, held at the Facultade da Letras de Lisboa (Lisbon's University) in November 2016, María Novela, was asked to present her research pape 39 steps: the architectural space of the staircase in Hitchcock's films.

This paper analyzes and catalogs the different kinds of staircases used by Alfred Hitchcock in his filmography. It also studies the space generated by the different types of stairs create, and the way in which the filmmaker uses that space to achieve a certain effect or another.
