PÖFF: 78/52

An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s „Psycho“ (1960), the „Man behind the Curtain“, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema.
„78/52“ references the number of set-ups (78) and the number of cuts (52) in the shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s „Psycho“. One entire week out of the four weeks scheduled to shoot „Psycho“ – a full quarter of the film’s production schedule – was dedicated to the infamous shower scene.
