Movie Event: Lion

On Sunday, February 11, 2018, the Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies will co-sponsor a viewing and discussion of the movie, Lion. Lion is based on a true story of a boy who was lost to his family in India and was adopted by an Australian family.

Early experiences with parental figures play a significant role in the psychological development of a child. Later in life, these early experiences often are transferentially recreated in new relationships. These dynamics are demonstrated in the movie, Lion.
