A journey through the cinema to discover more about Freud. Every Monday evening, from 5 February to 12 March 2018 at the Anteo Palazzo del Cinema in piazza XXV Aprile, number 8, a series of films will be shown which are characterised by close ties to the theme of psychoanalysis in the review Passioni segrete - Sigmund Freud, tra cinema e teatro, curated by Maurizio Porro, a critic for the Corriere della Sera. Porro explains that “all cinema borders with psychoanalysis. It is no coincidence that before leaving for Hollywood, Billy Wilder tried to interview Freud: the movie camera, in comparason to the theatre which, at the time, was without special effects, was a new threat.”
The review has been produced in collaboration with Intesa San Paolo.
