Cinema Dissection: "Psycho" With Robert Cumbow

SIFF says
"Psycho" is one of the pinnacles of Alfred Hitchcock's cinematic artistry. His structure of setting up a suspenseful robbery plot only to be forced in another direction gave Hitch his greatest opportunity to direct the audience. Every frame of the film builds the suspense and his impeccable choices in every creative aspect of the production finds the audience being afforded information only when the master allows it. Seattle University Professor Robert Cumbow guides this six hour audience-driven examination of Hitch's perfect horror masterpiece.

$20 | $15 SIFF Members | $19 Seniors & Youth

About Cinema Dissection
Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out ‘Stop' and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.

Note: Participants are recommended to have seen "Psycho" in advance of the session. We will not be screening the film in it's entirety before the dissection begins.
