Celluloid Psychology series 

Cinema is inextricably intertwined with psychology. Every film ultimately emerges from the mind of one human with the intention of making an impact on the mind of another. 
Dr Alastair Smith - School of Psychology

The Celluloid Psychology series is an ongoing series of screenings exploring the mind and brain in cinema. Each of the 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.
