A dashing, slightly odd young man rents a room from a couple that has fallen on hard times. He seems like the solution to all of their problems, until his increasingly unusual behaviour makes them suspect that he may be the serial killer currently stalking the streets of London.
(UK / Alfred Hitchcock / 1927)

“The Lodger is that distinctive combination of death and fetishism, trick shots and music-hall humour, intense menace and elegant camerawork that assured Hitchcock’s place among cinema's giants.”
- Andrew Pulver

Library Program: New Media Film Series

 What is the New Media Film Series?  
The New Media Film Series is dedicated to showcasing a selection of films that have contributed to our understanding of cinema's achievements, and signal directions for its future. Initiated and sponsored by the Department of New Media, various scholars from the University of Lethbridge will introduce and screen their choices for films that advance the art form. Please join us twice a month as we explore together the parameters of various masterful cinematic accomplishments.

Mission Statement  

The New Media Film Series focuses on new possibilities and creative currents within the cinema, and provides a forum for the public to be exposed to and discuss cinema's historical developments. We aim to provide the Lethbridge community with an opportunity to enhance their appreciation and understanding of cinema as an art form via conversations with informed scholars and aficionados. Therefore, the Series is dedicated to presenting a vibrant glimpse of cinema's future, and agitates for the importance of understanding and appreciating its past.
