Relive Alfred Hitchcock's powerful, complex psychological thriller, "Psycho", with SCADFILM!
The screeching strings, the plunging knife, the slow zoom out: in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" changed film history forever with its influential shower scene. With 78 camera set-ups and 52 edits over the course of 3 minutes, "Psycho" redefined screen violence, set the stage for decades of films to come, and introduced a new element of danger to the moviegoing experience. Aided by a roster of filmmakers, critics, and fans--including Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, and Peter Bogdanovich--director Alexandre O. Philippe pulls back the curtain on the making of this cinematic gem, breaking it down frame by frame and unpacking Hitchcock's dense web of allusions and double meanings.
After the screening, "78/52" director, Alexandre O. Phillipe, will take the stage to discuss the power and mastery of a movie that, nearly 60 years on, still feels as modern, complex and cutting-edge as it did in 1960.
