You are warmly invited to our first Jung and Film evening for 2021, on Friday evening 22 January, Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent van Gogh (Paul Cox 1987) (Run time: 1h 45m).
This movie by Paul Cox offers an intimate portrait of the artist in his life, sharing his sorrows and joys with his brother, Theo, in the more than 750 letters that passed between them during their lifetime. In this way Cox manages to take us into the inner experience of Van Gogh himself, which is reflected in his paintings.
Jung says: A creative calling is like a daimonion, which, in some instances, can ruin a person’s entire life. (Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 164-167) Jung saw this process as one of great social significance, where conjured primordial images were “constantly at work educating the spirit of the age.”
This beautiful movie will give us the opportunity to reflect on the creative spirit in both its divine and daimonic aspects, through the life and work of Vincent van Gogh.
