Cinema and Psyche: How a Depth Psychologist Looks at Film with Dr. Glen Slater, PhD
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 3:00 PM PT
Screen stories convey cultural mythologies. Beyond presenting the hero and his associated cast of helpers and challengers, these stories also convey mythic landscapes, characters and creatures that reflect the way timeless archetypes reappear in modern guise and tell us about what is breaking into contemporary consciousness. In this way films are also like collective dreams, compensating our conscious outlook. In this short treatment of the theme, I will discuss the way Jungian psychology provides conceptual tools and perspectives to bring these ideas to life. I will first explore the nature of the medium itself, with its imagistic and symbolic language. Then I will describe a salient figure who is especially prominent in critically acclaimed American films I have named the “outsider protagonist” and their relevance to contemporary culture. This presentation will serve to illustrate the kind of approach to psychological phenomena we engage in the Jungian and Archetypal Studies program.
