Thursday, Sep 28, 2017


This October, alum Molly Castelloe (Ph.D '05) will screen her award-winning documentary "Vamik's Room" at the upcoming Conference "Psychology and The Other," in Cambridge, MA.

Molly Castelloe's documentary film "Vamik's Room" received the Gradiva Award for Best Film given by the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis in 2017.

"Vamik’s Room" is a film about 5-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Vamik Volkan, a psychoanalyst born in Cyprus who has created a new form of international diplomacy based on the emotional life of nations, the historical traumas of a people and their collective efforts of shared mourning.

 “One can see in this film there is a special aura around this man who has managed to see and listen to the worst of humanity and bring faith and love to the saddest situation.”

- Ann Bennett Mix, Founder, American WWII Orphans Network, daughter of Sydney Bennett killed in WWII.

Molly also runs The Me in We blog on Psychology Today.
