The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 

In 2000, the British Film Institute conducted a survey to determine the 100 greatest English films of the twentieth century. When all the ballots were counted, the choice for first place was Carol Reed's 1949 masterpiece of film noir, The Third Man. Starring Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Trevor Howard, and Orson Welles, with screenplay by Graham Greene, musical score by Anton Karas and Oscar winning cinematography by Robert Krasker. The Third Man also won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 1949. Evil is lurking in post World War II Vienna and children are dying. Why?

Discussants: Dick Simons is past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association and past director of the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis.
