Confederation for Analytical Psychology
is delighted to announce its latest series of seminars in collaboration with the JW3 Centre in NW3.
JUNG AND FILM 2016:
World Cinema: Jungian Lens
CHRISTOPHER HAUKE and HELENA BASSIL-MOROZOW
THE CAP FILM SERIES FOR 2016 FOLLOWS THE THEME OF “WORLD CINEMA”. OF ALL THE DEPTH PSYCHOLOGISTS, CARL JUNG WAS MOST WIDELY TRAVELLED AND OBSERVANT OF HOW HUMAN LIVES WERE LIVED AND EXPERIENCED IN DIFFERENT WAYS ACROSS CULTURES. TALKING WITH KENYANS, INDIANS, NATIVE AMERICANS AND OTHERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, JUNG FOUND A RICH SOURCE FOR HIS PSYCHOLOGICAL UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IT IS TO BE HUMAN. WE HOPE OUR WATCHING OF THESE FILMS FROM GERMANY, BULGARIA, SWEDEN, ISRAEL AND ARGENTINA WILL STIMULATE YOUR DISCUSSIONS ALONG SIMILARLY PLURALISTIC, JUNGIAN LINES.
Time: 10.30 -1.30 (registration from 10.00 am) on Sundays
(note new, later Sunday-friendly start!)
Cost: CAP members and concs: £12 (Others £15)
Whole series: CAP members and concs: £50 (Others £68)
There is a reduced cost for booking the entire series.
Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky | 1975 | Russian with English Subtitles | 107 Mins | Rated U
A study of a man’s relationship with the mother in its various incarnations – as a woman, a symbol, an object, a reflection in the mirror; as tempestuous force of nature, as the unconscious which gives birth to creativity and inspires men; and, finally, as mother Russia – the goddess who needs protection yet also demands sacrifice.
All the seminars are open to anyone with an interest in Jungian psychology or psychoanalysis and cinema – whether clinician, academic, student or with a general interest. Each seminar incorporates a short introductory lecture by Christopher Hauke or Helena Bassil-Morozow, followed by a viewing of the film, and finally a group discussion afterwards led by Christopher or Helena.
