Screening Conditions: Mila from Mars

24 Feb 2013

The depiction of childhood in European cinema will be explored from January in the returning series Screening Conditions, the popular film and psychoanalysis series from the Institute of Psychoanalysis. Screening Conditions explores cinema from a psychoanalytic perspective, opening up debate about how individual films portray, and are influenced by analytic concepts.

This series' theme is 'Troubled Children' and the chosen films concern children of different ages and gender: two sisters in their 'latency age' (The Spirit of the Beehive), an abused and sulky adolescent (Mila from Mars) and a disturbed pre-adolescent boy (The Kid with a Bike).

Sunday 20 January - The Spirit of the Beehive followed by discussion
Sunday 24 February - Mila from Mars followed by discussion
Sunday 17 March - The Kid with a Bike followed by discussion

Each screening will be followed by a discussion between Andrea Sabbadini, director of Screening Conditions, and special guests including film historian Peter Evans, director Zornitsa Sophia and child psychoanalyst Denis Flynn plus contributions from the audience.
