If you’re already fascinated by movies from the standpoint of human behavior, consciousness and character motivation, try watching them with a neuroscientist.
With cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Heather Berlin (Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and host of Science Goes to the Movies) we take a journey into the human mind, exploring its relationship to cinema, in terms of complex characters, decision-making, dreams and the unconscious, addiction, artificial intelligence and the creative process itself. We also look at what cognitive science tells us about how we watch movies.
We check in (remotely) with filmmaker Ruben Östlund whose lifelong fascination with social psychology needs no further illustration than his body of work, which includes The Square (winner of the 2017 Cannes Palm D’Or), Force Majeure, Play and Involuntary.
And we pay homage to the glorious history of brains in movies, even the less cerebral ones (that’s you The Brain That Wouldn’t Die).
LFLA Members are invited to enjoy an exclusive reception following the program.
