PDS7907 Participatory Cinema: Personality Disorders (Star Wars)
May 13, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
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 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.
Perhaps the most famous tagline in motion picture history is “No, I am your father” uttered by Darth Vader. Why is Vader perhaps the most evil villain ever depicted? Is Luke Skywalker’s destiny predetermined upon learning he is Vader’s son? We’ll have the answers even before George Lucas or Walt Disney even considered the question by reviewing the etiology and pathogenesis of the personality disorders.
