Alfred Hitchcock created the single most extraordinary and mysterious scene in the history of cinema—the iconic shower scene in Psycho. 78/52, which refers to the number of set-ups (78) and cuts (52) in the scene, delves into the genius and experimental process of its creation and its indelible impact on filmmaking. Born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland, Alexandre Phillipe holds an Master of Fine Arts A in Dramatic Writing from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He has directed several narrative and documentary films including The People Vs George Lucas, Doc of the Dead, and The Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus. He is the Creative Director and Co-Owner of Denver-based Cinema Vertige.
