Film and Psychoanalysis: The Handmaid’s Tale
Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018 – Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018
07:00 PM – 09:00 PM
Four Thursdays in August, four different FREE film screenings with discussions afterward
Co-sponsored by the Houston Psychoanalytic Society
This 1990 film adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian, speculative novel reveals the prescience of Atwood's thirty-three year old story. Discussion of the film's themes will encompass the intersectionality of political, racial/ethnic, and gender and sexual oppression. Attention will be given to how the #MeToo and Time's Up movements are responding to long-simmering tensions in these domains, and how the experience of internalized oppression both contributes to the continuation of tension and informs a possible re-visioning of these tensions.
Anne Strain, LCSW, is a psychotherapist in private practice and a candidate-in-training to become a Jungian analyst in the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.
