Join the Portland Center for Public Humanities and the Oregon Psychoanalytic Center for a screening and discussion of Atom Egoyan's haunting, non-linear 1994 film, "Exotica," another night of our series in "Psychoanalysis and Cinema."
Location: Cinema 90, Fifth Avenue Cinemas
Date: Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Time: 7 p.m.
Light fare will be served.
"Exotica" is Toronto-based director Egoyan's greatest film, leaving its audience with unanswered questions as well as new insights into the human condition. According to Roger Ebert, there is no essential mystery at the end of Atom Egoyan's "Exotica," save "the mysteries of human nature that Egoyan evokes," a film he goes on to describe as a "cry of sympathy for people suffering from loss and guilt, and also an affirmation about how others are wiling to understand them."
A discussion will follow the film, led by Lauren Berg, a psychoanalyst and psychologist associate in Oregon, and member of the OPC. Dr. Michael Clark, PCPH director, will also join the discussion.
The event is free and open to the public. Join us!
