The Mirror (1975)

  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth

Save event

Andrei Tarkovsky’s semi-autobiographical work makes a rare appearance on the big screen. With a beguiling combination of original material and historical footage, the film explores a dying man’s memories of his past, through the tumult of Russian history and personal family strife. This is a poetic enigma of a film, reflecting the piecemeal nature of human identity and reminiscence.

Dr Duncan Moss, a clinician in the School of Psychology, will introduce the screening and discuss how we attempt to form a mental coherence out of life’s momentary and often random events.

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.
