Special Film Seminar Weekend: “The Way of the Dream”
June 23, 2001 @ 8:00 am - June 24, 2001 @ 5:00 pm PDT
This unique documentary, produced and directed by Fraser Boa, is a series of 20 half-hour films on the dreams of ordinary people.
Included in this series is a montage of people around the world responding to three questions: Do you dream? Do you think your dreams are important? Can you recall a dream? The film crew traveled over 25,000 miles, to Canada, England, France, Switzerland and the United States, for these spontaneous reactions.
The basic structure of the series is a more formal telling of personal dreams by a smaller group of men and women followed with interpretations of these dreams by Dr. von Franz. Certain motifs and archetypes are illustrated in these dreams and include : The male shadow; the negative and positive anima; patterns in dreams; the female shadow; negative and positive animus; dreams of our culture; dreams of relationships; dreams of The Self. Some of segment titles are: The Devouring Mother, The Inner Bride, The Hanged Man, and Hell Has No Mirrors.
Our The Way of the Dream weekend will include discussions led by local Jungian analysts. Though the film is segmented, it is continuous thematically and the two-day attendance is encouraged. This is the first showing of Boa’s film in Oregon in over ten years, a rare opportunity for our community.
