Popcorn Psychology

Jung Center
It’s back! Grab some popcorn and discover how film and psychology go together like Mike and Ike. It is no accident that the movies came of age alongside the discipline of psychology. Both examined the human experience in new and innovative ways, inventing vocabularies and techniques that continue to shape our culture and our very perceptions of ourselves. We will watch portions of four movies in class and explore how psychology can inform our film watching—and how the art of film can teach us about human nature. We recommend that you watch the films in advance of each week’s conversation. Selections: May 5: Parasite (2019) May 12: Soul (2020) May 19: The Rider (2017) May 26: The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) This livestreaming program can be taken from home or anywhere with an internet connection. If you register you will be emailed viewing instructions either the evening before or the morning of the event. [Organizer's description]
