The Jung Center

Film and Psychoanalysis: Lion

Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017 – Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017

07:00 PM – 09:30 PM


Four Thursdays in August, four different free film screenings with discussions afterward.
Co-sponsored by the Houston Psychoanalytic Society
Lion tells the true story of Saroo Brierley, a five-year old boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia; 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family. Through the lens of this young Indian boy, we experience being fundamentally lost, profound searching, and survival. Through symbols, story, and sound, we will track his finding of home as we tap into our own internal and external experiences of loss/lost and found.
