Daphne Du Maurier:
The Cinema Director’s Dream Writer
Du Maurier’s novels are famous for the ease with which they transfer to the silver screen - stories of passion, tension and alarmingly candid psychological takes on her characters, both male and female, trapped in unhealthily obsessive relationships make stunning films.
Her writing was noted as being so strongly cinematic that Hitchcock made three films based on her work – ‘Jamaica Inn’, ‘The Birds’ and ‘Rebecca’ -while ‘Don’t Look Now’, the classic horror film directed by Nicholas Roeg , was based on her story.
The novel, ‘My Cousin Rachel’, has recently been made into a film starring Rachel Weisz and the play is part of the Winter programme at Chichester Festival Theatre.
We are delighted once again to join with CFT in a three-part tribute to Daphne.
Full details of this exciting offer will be available in the Awards Season (Feb-Apr 2020), but do check online, or better, join the Cinema Mailing List (www.chichestercinema.org) to be the first to know.
