Looking For Alfred
Year:  2005

Country:  Belgium
Genre:  Short
Cast:  Zale Kessler, Bruce Ho, Ron Burrage, Delfine Bafort, Roger Swaine, Erik Grimonprez

Description:
  This film documents the Belgian artist Johan Grimonprez's hunt for the perfect Alfred Hitchcock look-a-like. Obsessed with de/reconstructing our corrupted visions of media, celebrity and appearance, Grimonprez assembled a bewildering gaggle of Hitchcock lookalikes, staggering in girth and exacting in attitude, in a quest to find the most accurate specimen. The merging of reality and fiction are central to look-a-like culture. Here a copy can outdo the original, just as fact can often be stronger and stranger than fiction. Conceptually 'Looking for Alfred' is based on the understanding that our perception of reality is generated by fiction and not least Hollywood.
