Dangerous Method - March 1st.

The next Cardiff sciSCREEN will be on Thursday March 1st from 6pm at Chapter Arts Centre when we will be discussing themes brought up in the film Dangerous Method.

Directed by David Cronenberg and starring Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen, the film explores the birth of psychoanalysis by focussing on the relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. After the film screening there will be discussion, debate and a wine reception. The talks will cover the representation of the female characters, popular and professional attitudes towards psychoanalysis in Edwardian society, the depiction of psychiatrists in film, Freud’s Welsh connection, and one hundred years of psychoanalysis and Buddhism. This event will be sponsored by the Welsh Psychiatric Society (WPS).

Tickets for the film are to be purchased from Chapter Arts Centre (6pm showing on March 1st). The discussion and debate will commence after the film in the room Stiwdio. This part of the event is free but places will be limited by the size of the venue. This room is, however, larger than previous events.
