The Stendahl Syndrome: FREE Movie @ the Jung Center

Every Thursday in August, the Jung Center hosts free community movie screenings and lectures which examine film and psychoanalysis. Each screening will be followed by brief comments from a different speaker from The Houston Psychoanalytic Society and The Jung Center. We will provide popcorn and candy to get you in the movie mood. No registration required. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

First up: The Stendahl Syndrome

A Dario Argento film described as an over-the-top Italian dramatization of this psychosomatic disorder that occurs spontaneously upon a person’s viewing artistic works in a museum, and which involves dizziness, hallucinations, and confusion. When a police detective in search of a serial killer is overcome by it, she gets led into a trap. The discussion will focus on Dr. Stevenson’s clinical experience with the syndrome. NOTE: This film is unrated and features graphic violence and sexual content.

It's totally free, including the popcorn and candy, but it's a very small venue, so please only RSVP if you're sure you'll be there. I'll hold seats if possible.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
