8:00PM – Film Screening
The Friday Night Papers series at IPTAR will feature a screening of Psychoanalysis in El Barrio, a film that details the excitement and challenges of clinical work with Hispanic patients who are affected by poverty. Winner of the PEP 2015 Video Grant, the film captures the complexities of working across issues related to culture, class, immigration, language, ethnicity and race. It challenges the not-uncommon notion that Hispanic patients affected by poverty can only benefit from therapies that rely on very concrete interventions. The documentary features renowned clinicians, including: Carlos Padrón (Venezuela); Christopher Christian (Puerto Rico); Daniel Jose Gaztambide (Puerto Rico); David Ramirez (Mexico); Ernesto Mujica (Cuba); Maria de Lourdes Mattei (Puerto Rico), Patricia Gherovici (Argentina); Rafael Art. Javier (Santo Domingo); Ricardo Ainslie (Mexico). The film was made possible by a generous grant from Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEP) with the support of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR).
