~ FAIRY TALE ~ FILM ~ DREAM ~
“La Belle et la Bete”
“Fairy tales represent the archetypes in their simplest, barest, and most concise form . . .”
—Marie-Louise von Franz, The Interpretation of Fairy Tales
These programs will explore the kinship between dreams, fairy tales, and “moving pictures.” Fairy tale films bring the language of symbols to life. When we treat each film as a dream, its universal imagery becomes a living laboratory for engaging in depth-oriented dream work.
Jean Cocteau’s rapturous masterwork, La Belle et la Bete, launches our series. It spins a luminous dreamlike tale of a father’s daughter, shadow confrontation, sexual initiation, and wildness.
~ Opening lecture highlighting the film’s central folkloric and archetypal themes.
~ Film shown in its entirety, followed by discussion to share observations and insights.
~ Work with key film scenes, treated as dream material, to actively build dream skills.
