    An homage to North America’s most European city

    In 1953, Alfred Hitchcock and his Hollywood crew flew to a small French Canadian town called Quebec. There, they filmed one of the “Master of Suspense” most underrated movies: “I, Confess”.

    Hitchcock said he chose Quebec City mostly for convenient reasons. It was a perfect substitute for his beloved Paris with its Gothic churches and Old World charm. The French Canadian city was a cinematic natural.

    Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, Quebec is one of the oldest cities in North America and definitely has a European feel to it.

    More than 30 years after the filming of “I, Confess”, I began a fascination for Alfred Hitchcock’s suspenseful and masterful movies. I was thrilled and even surprised to find out that he shot one of them in my hometown and for the most part not very far from where I lived as a young boy. It inspired me to rediscover my city.

    Armed with my camera and a good winter coat, I braved the frozen winter months and began filming scenes of my own. With Hitchcock’s movie soundtracks in my headphones, I walked every street corner and looked everywhere for the perfect point of view of Quebec. What came out of my quest was my first time lapse piece. An homage to “Hitch” but also an homage to my hometown: “La Vieille Capitale”.
