Course Overview: 

Join the PLC and Dr. Jed Sekoff for a screening and discussion of the Oscar-nominated film, Arrival, a science fiction drama exploring communication with extraterrestrial intelligence. Following the screening, Dr. Sekoff will discuss the film’s themes through a psychoanalytic lens, including “otherness” (and our response to it) and our relation to time, memory, and loss. Popcorn will be served.

His writing, teaching, and presentations interweave clinical theory, the arts, social history, and politics.
