MELANCHOLIA  |  View Full Calendar

Presented by Pamela Power, Ph.D.


General Admission: $10.00

Admission With Credit: $20.00

Melancholia is a film that suggests multiple psychological interpretations.  It can be seen as the breakout of a psychotic defense system in the main character.  Or one can view all the characters in the film as aspects of a single mind undergoing 'catastrophic change.'  Or it can be seen as a meditation on the breakdown of Expectation when destruction overwhelms repair.  On the Meta level, we ask, How does such a film manage to be "beautiful"?
