Synopsis

This insightful documentary explores the story behind the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s horror masterpiece, ‘Psycho’, with its title, ‘78/52’, referring to the sequence’s number of camera setups and cuts. The contributors – who range from Janet Leigh’s body double to her daughter (actress Jamie Lee Curtis) and from modern horror directors to relevant film buffs – discuss Hitchcock’s fascinating approach to its composition, and the result it has on the viewer. The sound, camerawork and editing are all studied, thematic insights around voyeurism and maternal relationships are mused upon, and the film’s creation is given historical context. ’78/52’ is a love-letter to filmmaking, The Master of Suspense and the scene which changed the rules of cinema.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
