“No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul.”
Film and story have long been used as a form of therapy, as a way of helping people find solutions to their own problems, while identifying with a fictional character. Often know as cinema therapy, reel therapy or narrative therapy.
For me, it is much more than that.
While they can certainly help us heal, I also think films can let us into the psyche of the current culture, encourage us to open up deeper and meaningful conversations, have us challenge societal norms and give us an approachable way to have important discussions.
And that is what The Screenology Club aims to do; start meaningful discussions using film and story as the vehicle.
It’s totally free to join the club and it’s simple.
- Each month we watch a film, a film that Sarah feels is an important one that helps us to understand ourselves, others or the current climate and culture.
- We then get on-line on a Facebook group to discuss our thoughts.
- Sarah sends you her Screenology pack (which will be a pdf) about this film with suggested ways to use it for yourself or with others.
It’s simple; just sign up below and you will get all the instructions and Screenology packs.
See you at the clubhouse.
