"A Dangerous Method" - film and discussion

Free post-film discussion with guest speaker

A post-film discussion led by Jungian psychoanalyst Richard J. Sweeney, Ph.D. will be held at the Little Art Theatre on Friday, March 23rd at 9:00 PM following the 7:00 screening of David Cronenberg’s "A Dangerous Method."

Movie: $7.50; Discussion: Free – Donations Appreciated

Drawn from true-life events, "A Dangerous Method" takes a glimpse into the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung, his mentor Sigmund Freud and Sabina Spielrein, the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them. Into the mix comes Otto Gross a free-thinker who encourages Jung to cross therapist-patient boundaries. This exploration of sensuality, ambition and deceit sets the scene for the pivotal moment when Jung, Freud and Sabina come together and split apart, forever changing the face of modern thought.

Dr. Sweeney is a Jungian psychoanalyst and licensed professional clinical counselor practicing in Columbus and Cincinnati. He holds a doctorate in psychology and religion from The Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, and a diploma in analytical psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich, where he serves as a member of its international faculty wing. Those who have already seen the movie may attend the discussion. The Little Art invites such persons to look for a donation box in the lobby, contributing what they wish to the non-profit theatre.
