Psychology Looks at the Movies
with Mike Berkowitz
Let’s focus on films. We’ll use concepts and experiments from psychology to shed light on cinema scenes. Mini-lectures and 18-minute video clips will provide a background for examining 18 movies. We’ll discuss the issues in the films and their applications to society at large. (While some of the standard psychology concepts will be reintroduced, all movies will be different from the ones in previous sections of Psychology Looks at the Movies.) Warning: Spoiler alerts throughout.
Mike Berkowitz has taught in day care centers, elementary school, and colleges before finding his niche at senior colleges. He enjoys challenging folks to think in new ways.
This class will be presented on ZOOM.
