Jefferies, an adventurous press photographer who has broken his leg and remains confined to a wheelchair, spends his time obsessively peeking into his neighbors' home. Gradually he begins to suspect that a murder has taken place there and he is willing to do anything to confirm his suspicions, including endangering his loved ones. The film is considered one of Hitchcock’s most notable works and one of the most outstanding examples of classic cinema in general.


Italian author Giovanna Giordano, nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature, will present the film and talk about how, when she first watched it as a young woman, she discovered the rational and scientific power of the gaze.
