Blue Velvet. David Lynch, USA 1986. Mit Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper.

Weisse Zäune um propere Gärtchen, Vogelgezwitscher, ein Feuerwehrauto fährt, Sicherheit verbreitend, durch die Vorstadt. Das ist die Welt, in der Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) und Sandy (Laura Dern) sich verliebt haben und auf die sie ihre Zukunft bauen. Doch dann findet der junge Mann auf dem Rasen ein abgeschnittenes Ohr, und das lässt den Boden unter ihm einbrechen. Er rutscht in einen Abgrund, wo ganz und gar schräge Begierden ihr Wesen treiben.

Lynchs Klassiker von 1986 handelt von der Ablösung und der sexuellen Erweckung eines jungen Mannes, führt dabei aber vor allem die dunklen – perversen – Aspekte vor, eben die Kehrseite der romantischen Liebe.
Die Kamera von David Lynch setzt das visuell um: Einmal droht sie im dunklen Gehörhang zu versinken, ein andermal zeigt sie unter der Rasenoberfläche ein Gewimmel von Würmern und Insekten.
Auch an der Oberfläche verschieben sich die Dinge. Jeffrey lernt eine neue, im Gegensatz zur blonden Sandy dunkelhaarige und sinnliche Frau kennen (Isabella Rossellini). Sie ihrerseits wird drangsaliert von Frank (Dennis Hopper), der mit Gewalt und Unberechenbarkeit über eine verborgene Zone der Stadt herrscht.

Nach einer gemeinsamen Visionierung am Freitagabend werden wir am folgenden Nachmittag den Film anhand von ausgewählten Szenen analysieren.

Exploring the Self

The 4th Italian Psychoanalytic Dialogues Conference in Rome will make a contribution to the topic of the “Exploration of the Self”, summoning three experts from the fields of neuroscience and psychoanalysis. They are invited to share their points of view in order to bridge different disciplines involved in the attempts to define one of the most complex, elusive and intriguing concepts: the Self. Vilayanur Ramachandran, (S.Diego University, USA), a world-famous neuroscientist who is known for his pivotal experiments about self-perception, will explore the interface between neurosensoriality and the building of the Self. George Northoff (Ottawa University, Canada) will focus on the neural basis of the Self as explored through his work using neuroimaging studies. His work about the perception of space and time related to the sense of Self has brought in the new concept of neuropsychodynamic psychopathology. Mario Rossi Monti (Università di Urbino, Italia/ Società Psicoanalitica Italiana) will offer a psychodynamic overview of the development of the Self according to a psychoanalytic and phenomenological approach in the frame of postmodern cultural transformations: from the “Protean Self “ of Turkle to the borderline identity diffusion. During the Sunday session, leading exponents of different therapeutic approaches will join the discussion about a clinical case that relates to relevant disturbances of the Self.

PROJECTIONS: Cinematic representations of mental illness

Organizer: Freud Museum London

Guy de Maupassant once said, “A sick thought can devour the body’s flesh more than fever or consumption.” Mental illness is one of the leading causes of the overall disease burden worldwide. Depression and anxiety are reported to be among the main drivers of disability in Western countries.

The cinema is a chronicler of transformation revealing the soul’s sublime dreams; it is also a useful mode of expression for the pain endured by a fragmented mind. Compared to other art forms, the film medium possesses a unique capacity to showcase the complexity of human emotion, and so occupies a privileged position in conveying the subjective experience of psychological disturbance.

In this day course, a selection of films portraying psychiatric diagnoses will be explored, with information provided on the emergence and development of distinct clinical categories including anxiety, depression and psychosis. In addition to in-depth content analysis of visual material, discussions will be held on the role of moving image culture in shaping public perception and social attitudes toward mental disorders.
