The ever-popular Hitchcock masterpiece will close the film cycle on the 25th of July
On Friday the 25th of July, the Nau Ivanow will host an open-air screening of Psychosis, one of Hitchcock’s most popular and acclaimed films. The screening will put the finishing touch to the open-air film cycle that the Sant Andreu has been offering every Friday during the month of July and which has included classics from different eras, such as The Big Lebowski, The Getaway and Group 7.
Hitchcock directed Psychosis, one of the most popular films in the history of cinema, in 1960. Starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles and Martin Balsam, the film, above all, was noted for its surprising, revolutionary plot twists and for the treatment of the genre, a type of pure, naked terror with elements of fantasy and science fiction; a film which, in the words of the renowned and now deceased film critic, Roger Ebert, was capable of “contacting directly with our fears”.
In Psychosis, a young secretary is on the run from the city having committed a robbery in the company where she works. After driving for hours on end, she decides to stop for a rest in a small roadside motel run by a shy young man named Norman. All appears normal and quiet in both the motel as well as in the adjacent house where Norman lives with his mother. But all is not as it seems.
Entry to the screening costs 3 euros. The doors of the Nau Ivanow patio open at 9 pm and the film will begin at 10 pm. More information is available here.
