ĊineXjenza – Psychoanalysis

Date and Time: Thursday 12 April 2018, 7.00PM
Entrance: Free (booking not required)
Suffering from hysteria, Sabina Spielrein is hospitalized under the care of Dr Carl Jung who has begun using Dr Sigmund Freud’s talking cure with some of his patients. Spielrain’s psychological problems are deeply rooted in her childhood and violent father. She is highly intelligent however, and hopes to be a doctor, eventually becoming a psychiatrist in her own right. The married Jung and Spielrein eventually become lovers. Jung and Freud develop an almost father-son relationship with Freud seeing the young Jung as his likely successor as the standard-bearer of his beliefs. A deep rift develops between them when Jung diverges from Freud’s belief that while psychoanalysis can reveal the cause of psychological problems it cannot cure the patient.
ĊineXjenza aims to spark debates around science topics raised in movies, discussing their likelihood in the future and present technologies. In this event we will be discussing Psychoanalysis and its advantages and disadvantages, after the screening of A Dangerous Method. The discussion will be held with an expert in the field from the University of Malta. Snacks and refreshments will be served during the discussion.
ĊineXjenza is supported by the STEAM Summer School project funded by the Erasmus+ of the European Union. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv.
