Alfred Hitchcock Filming - The King of Suspense

Presbyterian College will be screening the documentary 78/52 in Neville Hall on Thursday, April 19, 7 p.m. 

78/52 is the sixth and final film of the 2017-2018 Southern Circuit Film Tour and explores the talent and thought process behind the iconic shower-murder scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s groundbreaking thriller Psycho.

Throwing caution to the wind, Hitchcock ignored almost all taboos of his time to produce this one movie scene, but his risk is what started a revolution. 

Scoring over 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 83% satisfaction rate from viewers, 78/52 is a film depicting how this one scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho has changed cinematic history to this day. 

Written and directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, 78/52 will bring its viewers deeper into the process and structure of what it takes to make a lasting mark on cinematic history. Those who attend will enjoy the opportunity to speak with Philippe, learning about the composition process behind his own documentary.
