Upcoming Event - Jung and Film - Venus Uncovered 21 Sept


We invite you to our next film evening on Friday 21 September for the screening of Venus Uncovered: Ancient Goddess of Love (58 mins). “Venus Uncovered” is the remarkable story of one of antiquity's most potent life forces. In this documentary, Professor Bettany Hughes, an English historian, author, and broadcaster. embarks on a voyage of discovery to reveal the truth behind the Venus depicted in the famous painting by Velazquez, the “Rokeby Venus”.  Beginning in Cyprus, the goddess's mythical birthplace, Hughes decodes Venus's relationship to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, and, in turn, Aphrodite's complex origins both as a Cypriot spirit of fertility and procreation but also as a descendant of the prehistoric war goddesses of the Near and Middle East, Ishtar, Inanna and Astarte. Hughes meets world experts who reveal the mysterious and obscure ways this ancient goddess was imagined and worshipped. She remains a beguiling force in our psyches – complex, dangerous, compelling, and worthy of our respect. We trivialise the power of this archetypal force at our peril. We will encounter aspects of this archetypal energy again in our next film, “Wonder Woman”.
