JaH: An “Anima Woman” Finds Herself
April 25 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Otto Preminger’s Laura (1944) introduces us to a young woman who receives and reflects the projections of others as if that were her main reason for existing. As played by actress Gene Tierney, Laura is intelligent, adept, and hollow. Unlived aspects of her potential personality are personified in the characters of her misfit friends and relations and the police detective (Dana Andrews) who is investigating what was thought to be her murder. As the story moves toward resolution, vital parts of Laura’s personality begin to take root and blossom.
