    Film Night: "Nise: The Heart of Madness"

    7:30 pmCommunity Unitarian Church - 468 Rosedale Ave., White Plains NY 10605

    Directed by Roberto Berliner, this beautiful movie explores the power of human connection, art and the ideals at the heart of psychoanalysis. Set in 1940’s Brazil, the movie tells the true story of Dr. Nise da Silviera (played by award-winning actress Gloria Pires). The only female psychiatrist in a psychiatric hospital on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, Dr. da Silviera refuses to employ the new and violent electroshock therapy in her treatment of schizophrenics. After challenging her colleagues she is ridiculed and left to run the long-defunct occupational therapy program. As she seeks to find alternative ways to care for her patients who have long been mistreated, isolated and abandoned to institutional care, Nise first creates a space of safety and connection. She then begins to understand the meaning of her patients’ behaviors and actions. Sustained by her deep belief in the human capacity for communication, the potential for healing through the symbolic expression of inner experience and its recognition by others, and inspired by the work of Carl Jung, Nise helps transform the lives and experiences of the patients in her care.

    A discussion following the screening will be facilitated by
    Connie M. de Pinho, Ph.D.

    Refreshments will be served.

    Admission: $10
