Popcorn Psychology, Session 4: Uncle Vanya (Hybrid)
click here to register.
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.
May: Uncle Vanya, Ian Rickson (dir.), Anton Chekhov (wrt.)
