78/52 Review

Slash Film saw 78/52 at Fantasia and wrote a very nice review about our little doc.

The running water. The figure behind the shower curtain. The flash of the knife. The sudden screech of strings to accompany the slaughter. Everyone knows the shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho – even people who have somehow managed to never see the film. It is, perhaps, the most famous scene in film history, and it’s a moment that changed the medium itself…



78/52 wins Audience Award !

We woke up to a very nice surprise this morning ! Our documentary 78/52 won the Silver Audience Award at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montréal. We are extremely thankful to the Audience and to the festival for selecting our film.

Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, 78/52 takes an unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psychose (1960), the “man behind the curtain”, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema.
