Gavin Friday Introducing ‘The Birds’ at IFI

The Birds

Irish musician and composer Gavin Friday will be at the IFI this weekend to introduce a special screening of Hitchcock’s classic thriller ‘The Birds’.

‘The Birds’ is being screened as part of the IFI’s season of films featuring the music of Bernard Herrmann.

“Herrmann worked closely with avant-garde composer Remi Glassman to develop the noise of birds electronically” says the IFI. “A flutter or a squawk becomes almost as unnerving as the screaming violins in ‘Psycho’; and there’s a remarkable sequence where a family awaits a massed assault by birds on their home and the terror is conveyed almost entirely by the soundtrack. Herrmann also knew when to be silent, here leaving it to Hitchcock to create one of his greatest suspense sequences as the heroine (Tippi Hedren) waits nervously in the school playground to collect a child and, quietly unnoticed, some birds gather behind her with deadly purpose.”

Gavin Friday, whose credits include ‘In America’, ‘The Boxer’ and ‘Romeo + Juliet’, will introduce the film on Sunday the 20th of August. For further details visit www.ifi.ie
