The Celluloid Psychology series is brought to you as an ongoing series of screenings exploring the mind and brain in cinema. Each of our carefully selected films are curated and introduced by a specialist in human behaviour, who will discuss how their area of expertise can shed unexpected light on the psychological questions explored in the film.
Some screenings might provide a new perspective on familiar works, whereas others will introduce lesser-seen gems that perfectly illustrate an idea or phenomenon. Celluloid Psychology was devised by Dr Alastair Smith (School of Psychology) as an antidote to the usual depictions of psychology on our screens. Alastair will host each session and introduce the guest experts.
