"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Chapel Hill: The Hero & The Tree of Life"
DECEMBER 14, 2014 3-5 pm Chapel Hill Public Library, Room B
Theresa Yuschok, MD, is a psychiatrist.
The lecturers will present turning points in the life of Betty Smith, author of a Tree Grows in Brooklyn (written when the author lived in Chapel Hill). They will also relate those turning points to C. G. Jung's writings on individuation -- the ways we develop our unique personalities, learn to stand on our own two feet, and know who we are. Dr. Yuschok will discuss important symbols in Smith's life which helped her to understand her deeply felt experiences. The symbol of the tree as a source of vitality in hard times will be featured. This discussion is accompanied by a slide presentation.

Join us for November Jung Society Movie & Discussion Night
Chocolat is a 1988 film directed by Claire Denis, about a French family that lives in colonial Cameroon. Marc and Aimée Dalens (Francois Cluzet and Giulia Boshi) are the parents of France (Cécile Ducasse), a young girl who befriends Protée (Isaach De Bankole), a Cameroon native who is the family's household servant. The film was entered into the 1988 Cannes Film Festival.
The film begins with an adult woman named France, walking down a road toward Douala, Cameroon. While walking, she is picked up by William J. Park (Emmet Judson Williamson), an African American who has moved to Africa and is driving to Limbe with his son. As they ride, France's mind drifts and we see her as a young girl in Northern French Cameroon where her father was a colonial administrator. The story is conducted through the eyes of young France, showing her friendship with the "houseboy", Protée, as well the sexual tension between him and her young and beautiful mother, Aimée. The conflict of the film comes from the discomfort created as France and her mother attempt to move past the established boundaries between themselves and the native Africans. This is brought to a head through Luc Segalen (Jean-Claude Adelin), a Western drifter who stays with the Dalens family after a small aircraft crashes nearby. He makes public the evident sexual attraction between Aimée and Protée, prompting the mother to act on her desire. This results in a fight between Luc and Protée, who consequently loses his in-house job and is moved to work outdoors in the garage as a mechanic.
