Busch Annapolis Library Spring Film Series: Great Films by Women Directors – The Hitch Hiker

April 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Since the beginning of the motion picture industry, women directors have created some of the most memorable movies ever made. In this series we’ll look at four of the best, from a gritty film noir to an offbeat comic gem. Despite lack of support from the larger film making community, women directors persevered and created lasting, influential films. Each film will be introduced by area cinephile Ann Glenn with info about the film’s production, director and stars and followed by a Q&A session.

The Hitch Hiker (1953)
The first American mainstream film noir directed by a woman; The Hitch Hiker is a fictionalized version of a real-life serial killer. Director Ida Lupino’s background was unusual as she was a well-known movie star herself. With a limited budget and bare bones production, Lupino created a gripping thriller.
