Film Night: Matter of Heart with Lesley Taranto

  • Mitchell Theatre, SMSA 280 Pitt St Sydney, NSW 2000 Australia (map)

The film and guided discussion will help us to see Jung as those who loved him did and develop a better understanding of his work, motivations, passions and boundaries.

Matter of Heart is a stimulating biographical documentary on the life and thinking of the great Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung. It is based on interviews with the Jung the famed psychologist and philosopher and helps to illuminate the nature of his personal presence as well as some of the underpinnings of his philosophy. Along with these interviews are extensive comments by his friends, family, and colleagues that show how much he had affected their lives. Black-and-white photographs bring back his childhood, life in medical school, and the period he spent as a disciple of Sigmund Freud before he split from his mentor's school of thought. When put together, these sources provide a well-rounded picture of Jung: his thinking, personality, background, and the people he touched.

Lesley Hamlyn is Vice President of the Sydney Jung Society.
