Film and Psychoanalysis: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018 – Thursday, Aug. 16, 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
Rage, grief, guilt, despair, and love fuel this story set in a small town in Middle America. Performances by Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell earned Oscar awards for best actress and supporting actor, and the film received more than 100 awards overall during this past season. The emotional storms of the characters and the town create bonds and divisions between people that reflect current cultural struggles across our country and the world. The film raises the question of whether redemption is possible in a way that has sparked controversy and challenged empathy.
