Celluloid Psychology series

Christine Lucas awakens each day with no memory for the things or people around her. We learn that this amnesia can be traced to a traumatic incident in her past, and a neurologist suggests that she use a camera to record her daily thoughts and experiences. Only then does the mysterious story behind her situation begin to unravel.

This tense thriller will be introduced by Dr Alyson Norman, an expert in human neuropsychology, who will discuss the importance of memory in the creation of our personal histories.

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 films exploring the mind and brain in cinema. Each of the carefully selected films is 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.
