WBCP FILM SERIES
BYOP (Bring Your Own Popcorn)
Two film series
WBCP is proud to host two film series, Psychoanalytic Takes on Cinema and the Leon Levin Psychoanalytic Film Festival, created to uncover the depth and complexity of human psychology through the art of film. The audience enjoys a rich experience of viewing a film together followed by a discussion of the characters, themes, conflicts and traumas as they are understood through a psychoanalytic lens. Following the formal discussion, the audience participates in an insightful and lively group question and answer period, all designed to raise consciousness about the deeper meanings of the film.
Films are chosen that are psychologically perceptive and stir the emotions and curiosity of the viewers. Both of the series provide insight into human psychology through the lens of psychoanalysis. Participants will view films and discussants will present a paper and/or lead a discussion illustrating basic psychoanalytic concepts.
We benefit from welcoming our community at large to join mental health providers as we learn more together about the interplay of psychoanalysis and film.
