The Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center & The Film and Digital Technology program at Chatham University are offering a night filled with powerful film and intriguing discussion with celebrated film maker Michelle Citron, Ph.D. and psychoanalyst Christine Fischetti, Ph.D., and Professor of Film Studies, Jane Feuer, Ph.D.  looking at gender, identity and the mother/daughter dyad.  

Michelle Citron, Ph.D., film, video and multimedia artist, scholar and author will discuss her film, Daughter Rite, and it's many connections with feminism and psychoanalysis.  The film is compelling in it's portrayal of the lasting effects of mother-daughter relationships.  During the program, Michelle Citron will present her expert viewpoints on the film in relation to feminism and psychoanalysis, while showing clips from Daughter Rite to illustrate these points further.  

This discussion will be followed by a response from Christine Fischetti, Ph.D., psychologist and psychoanalyst in private practice in Pittsburgh.  She has longstanding interests in both women's issues and film and is delighted to find the intersection of both in the night's discussion.
"Film represents my personal and psychoanalytic First Amendment:  complete freedom to speak and play about matters normally protected in our analytic cloisters.  Character, history, conflict are openly explored on the screen and bring a lively dialogue to analytic work."

Jane Feuer, Ph.D. will also be discussing her insights into the films presented.  Jane is a professor of Film Studies at the University of Pittsburgh in the English and Communications departments.  She is a film and television studies scholar and one of the founders of Console-ing Passions, a biennial conference in feminism, television, video, and new media.  

Review Summary of Daughter Rite
Michelle Citron's breakthrough film is a classic feminist study of the nuclear family and its effect on women -- particularly the mother/daughter relationship and relationships between sisters. The film combines home-movie footage and fictional cinéma vérité scenes with a voice-over narration that adds psychological depth and political weight. Provocative but ultimately ambiguous, the film was hailed as a major accomplishment upon its release, and it has become a mainstay of women's studies and cinema studies curricula. ~ Sarah Welsh, Rovi, The New York Times
