Celluloid Psychology series

This award-winning documentary follows a Palestinian father as he films his friends resisting the building of a separation barrier in their village. Whilst documenting their activism, he also records his son growing up. Over time, the two narratives become painfully intertwined, destroying both cameras and lives.

Dr Rana Abu-Zhaya, a developmental psycholinguist, will introduce the film by discussing representation and decolonisation in the context of an ongoing conflict.

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.
