Regent Street Cinema’s Psychology at the Movies event series returns with a screening of the Oscar-winning film Black Swan, followed by an interactive panel discussion at 7pm on Thursday 8 December.
Psychology at the Movies events give students and the general public the opportunity to see films from all times and enjoy a cinematic experience at the “Birthplace of Cinema”, the Regent Street Cinema. It is also aiming to involve the audience in discussions on concepts and issues raised in the films. Professionals from different fields are joining the conversations.
Black Swan, directed by Darren Aronofsky, is a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young New York ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen in Swan Lake turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.
Dr Kevin Morgan, Psychotherapist and Senior Lecturer at University of Westminster, and Ilham Sebah, PhD Researcher on Resilience, will contribute to the audience discussion after screening Black Swan.
This event is open to the public and tickets are limited on a first come first served basis. University of Westminster students can attend with a discounted ticket price of £6, instead of £11.
