Ciné-Psych: A Clockwork Orange

All Tickets are $7.50, and include a free small popcorn!

A Clockwork Orange (1971), dir. Stanley Kubrick

Alex DeLarge, a young offender in a dystopian future leads a gang involved in violent crimes. After being arrested, Alex is subject to “the Ludovico Technique”, an experimental rehabilitation treatment which conditions him to associate violence with severe physical illness. The treatment strips him of his free will, rendering him helpless and unable to defend himself. As Alex struggles with his new reality, the film explores themes of freedom, state control and the societal notion of “good” and “bad” violence. 

This event will be followed by an audience-panel discussion.

Content Advisory: This film contains intense scenes of violence, sexual assault, and psychological manipulation which may be disturbing or triggering for some.
