Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this stimulating biographical documentary, interviews with famed psychologist and philosopher Carl Jung help illuminate the nature of his personal presence as well as some of the underpinnings of his philosophy. Along with these interviews are extensive comments by his friends, family, and colleagues that show how much he had affected their lives. Black-and-white photographs bring back his childhood, life in medical school, and the period he spent as a disciple of Sigmund Freud before he split from his mentor's school of thought. When put together, these sources provide a well-rounded picture of Jung: his thinking, personality, background, and the people he touched.
