78/52 will celebrate its Swiss Premiere at the Fribourg International Film Festival next April. The film will screen in the section ‘Decryption’.
From the Festival’s page:
Every year FIFF’s themed section aims to find high-quality films that have slipped under the radar of distributors and other festivals. After themes such as The Image of the Islam in the Occident (2012) and Can you laugh about anything? (2015), it turned out that, over the last few months, an unusual number of excellent productions dedicated to cinema itself have emerged. The decline of celluloid has changed the nature of the medium, as well as how films are produced, enjoyed and archived. In the midst of this major shift, some filmmakers are demonstrating the cultural and social importance of cinema by exploring the past: the Swiss-American Alexandre O. Philippe will present his documentary 78/52 as a Swiss premiere, fresh from its screening at Sundance: a 90-minute film that passionately unpacks the famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.
