Participatory Cinema: Cognitive Disorders

January 19, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Instructor: Anthony Tobia, MD

Anastasia (1997) is an animated musical alternate-history film based on the 1954 play of the same name. The film follows the Grand Duchess Anastasia, an eighteen-year-old amnesiac, who searches for her deceased family. We pair the musical with Stephen King’s The Mist which allows for a creative review of potential substances that can induce the behavior depicted in the Grand Duchess. Movies have long been utilized to highlight varied areas in the field of psychiatry including the role of the psychiatrist, issues in medical ethics, and the stigma toward people with mental illness. At Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, comprehensive curricula have been created utilizing films as fictional case accounts of mental disorders. At the Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies, facilitated discussion of a selected film is achieved via social media as well as traditional PowerPoint didactic. Each seminar will show a feature-length film with a live Twitter feed on the screen that will transform the movie into an educational didactic.
