Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Anderson, Sal and Bell, Vaughan and Hilton, Gregory and Sen, Dolly

‘Cinema and Psychosis’ - a pan-European group of film theorists, filmmakers, psychiatrists, psychologists and neuropsychologists - pioneers research at the interface of cinematic ‘first person’ studies and phenomenological psychiatry.

The underlying concept of Cinema and Psychosis will be presented along with its recent initiative, the Institute of Inner Vision. The Institute places cinema at the centre of an exploration of the subjective experience of psychosis, using film as the language of articulation in the convergence of scientific knowledge and artistic perception. The objective of the Institute is to generate medical insights and celebrate the cinematic work of those with experience of psychiatric conditions.

Founded within the auspices of the London College of Communication at the University of the Arts London, the Institute aims to learn from people with experience of psychosis and disseminate knowledge and the diversity of creativity beyond conventions of the so-called norm.

Filmmakers Gregory Hilton and Dolly Sen, recipients of the Institute’s first film commissions, will screen and introduce their films.
