The Ninth European Psychoanalytic Film Festival (epff9) will take place from 2 - 5th November 2017
at The Royal Society of Medicine and BAFTA, London
Director: Andrea Sabbadini
The theme of this year’s festival – epff9 – is Interiors/Exteriors. These apparently opposed territories can at times harmoniously coexist, while at others they clash with each other in painful, disturbing or, possibly, transformative ways.
This idea is highly pertinent to both cinema and psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is at its very core about how we experience within us what is happening in the world outside. Conversely, it also investigates how the roles we assume in external reality – particularly in relationships – are shaped and affected by our inner worlds.
Cinema, too, has always explored ideas around relatedness and disconnection; surfaces and depths; visible images and what lies behind them; our deep inner worlds and the vast, sometimes unfathomable world beyond us.
