46 years ago, a group of total strangers facilitated by psychologists Carl Rogers and Richard Farson met and shared their feelings openly for 16 hours, allowing their intimate conversation to be recorded for an Academy Award-winning documentary film.
Made at the height of enthusiasm for novel kinds of "encounter group" and "sensitivity training", the film Journey Into Self captures both the spirit of its time and an eternal sense of how each of us guards and yet wants to reveal our true selves.
Journey Into Self, 1968, black-and-white, United States, English language, 34 minutes
This is the first of a series of planned Social Psychology Singapore "film nights" when we will meet, watch a film and discuss what its story might mean for our own lives.
