“A CINEMATIC HISTORY OF PSYCHODRAMA: From Moreno to Modern"
A Film Screening, Panel and Reception to Benefit the Preservation of the Visual History of Psychodrama
Many years ago J.L. Moreno anticipated the value of a visual recording of Psychodrama. We agree, and want to support both the cinematic conservation and development of new media materials for professionals and the public. If you believe in communicating the value of Psychodrama, you can help by attending or contributing to the premiere screening of “A Cinematic History of Psychodrama: from Moreno to Modern.”
This event will bring together Psychodramatists and program participants from 1968 to present.
The film features Early J.L. and Zerka T. Moreno, with Commentary by Prof. Jonathan Moreno (University of Pennsylvania). Inspired by Moreno's work, many others added their unique contributions. Many cinematic projects grew from these roots into a rich and varied history. We are fortunate to have many of the creative pioneers and cinema innovators joining us for this remarkable event.
