The Virginia Film Festival is underway, offering the public more than a hundred films and lectures over the weekend. Friday night's show promises to be a thriller for many fans of Alfred Hitchcock, with a film that was released 50 years ago, and events are planned in Richmond and Charlottesville to mark the occasion.
The 1963 trailer for The Birds begins with a mild mannered introduction.
“How do you do? My name is Alfred Hitchcock, and I would like to tell you about my forthcoming lectures. It is about the birds, and their age-long relationship with man.”
The company headed by Donald Trump is pressing ahead with plans for a golf course in Central Virginia, despite strong objections from environmentalists. Next week, they hope to mobilize the public with a movie about the golf course trump built in Scotland.
Richard Finney made an award-winning documentary about Donald Trump’s decision to build a golf course on environmentally sensitive land in northern Scotland.
“Essentially it’s untouched coastal dunes land, and there’s very little of that left in Great Britain, so it essentially was a kind of wilderness area.”
