CARL GUSTAVE JUNG (A Tribute to): Artist of the Soul
The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was one of the founding fathers of modern depth psychology. His most famous concept, the collective unconscious, had a deep influence not only on psychology but also on philosophy and the arts. Here, in his own words and writings, as well as with accounts of his closest relatives, we gain a personal insight into the life of the great psychoanalyst. He was a colleague of Sigmund Freud early in his career, but a disagreement in 1909 ended their collaboration. Nearing the end of his life, Jung stated that he remembered "only interior experiences, those that - beyond all illusions - really count in the life of an individual," which helps explain why Jung has inspired the New Age movement with his interest in occultism, Eastern religions, the I Ching, and mythology. This documentary approaches some of the most intimate aspects of Jung's life, while exploring some of his greatest and most sensational therapeutic intuitions of his acute and original mind.
