Psychoanalysis meets film at dedicated festival in Bucharest

The sixth edition of the Psychoanalysis and Film Festival takes place in Bucharest between December 7 and December 10 at the Museum of the Romanian Peasant.

Among the films that will be screened are On Body and Soul, the winner of this year’s Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, Cristi Puiu’s The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, and L’amant double, a Palme d’Or contender this year.
