PROJECTIONS : CINEMATIC REPRESENTATION
Screening & Talk Feb 9, 2019 to 12:00am
Cinematic representations of mental illness. Intensive Day Course
 
Guy de Maupassant once said, “A sick thought can devour the body’s flesh more than fever or consumption.” Mental illness is one of the leading causes of the overall disease burden worldwide. Depression and anxiety are reported to be among the main drivers of disability in Western countries.
 
The cinema is a chronicler of transformation revealing the soul’s sublime dreams; it is also a useful mode of expression for the pain endured by a fragmented mind. Compared to other art forms, the film medium possesses a unique capacity to showcase the complexity of human emotion, and so occupies a privileged position in conveying the subjective experience of psychological disturbance.
 
In this day course, a selection of films portraying psychiatric diagnoses will be explored, with information provided on the emergence and development of distinct clinical categories including anxiety, depression and psychosis. In addition to in-depth content analysis of visual material, discussions will be held on the role of moving image culture in shaping public perception and social attitudes toward mental disorders.
