    Fiction

    The prologue to THE GREEN FOG shows a dial being turned from “Talk” to “Listen”. In a studio cinema, a man in handcuffs is held at gunpoint as he watches the images on the screen. A map can be seen, with a finger pointing to San Francisco. Reporters stand in front of a building, poised to deliver news by loudspeaker; the public wait in fear. The Golden Gate Bridge appears, bathed in green light; a storm rises, the steep streets of the city are entirely deserted.Paying homage to Hitchcock's VERTIGO, THE GREEN FOG is a dizzy assemblage of film and TV images both familiar and unknown, a cinematic fatasy that pulls the viewer in and never lets go.

    THE GREEN FOG is suffused with a very Hitchcockian sense of intrigue, romance and suspense.
