Film and Psychoanalysis: Birdman, or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015

07:00 PM – 09:30 PM
US/Central

PSYCHOLOGY-AND-LIFE-240X240

Directed by Oscar winner Alejandro Iñárritu, Birdman depicts a former movie star, Riggan (Michael Keaton) as he questions his true identity and purpose and risks everything for authenticity via a risky Broadway production.

Riggan—like all of us—battles internal voices that may inspire or cripple and destroy. This highly acclaimed drama/comedy explores the struggle between persona and Self, rationality and inner daimons, existential crisis and transcendence.
