CONSTELLATING THE PRINCIPLED FEMININE
“Roma” (2018), directed by Alfonso Cuarón, uses the political turmoil of Mexico City at the beginning of the 1970s as the staging ground for more hidden issues of class, gender, and race. These challenge the integrity of an upper middle class doctor’s household in ways that only the family’s indigenous live-in maid Cleo has the common sense and the courage to combat directly. Speaking Mixtec as well as Spanish in her first film role, Yalitza Aparicio (a preschool teacher in real life) is transcendent as Cleo. Her humanity inspires the viewer to wish that she could be the mother of us all.
John Beebe, M.D. is a Jungian analyst and past president of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco who has spearheaded a Jungian approach to the analysis of film. In teaching and writing, he has often used psychological type and archetype to explore both individual filmmaker creativity and the cultural and political unconscious as revealed by a moving film. Dr. Beebe’s books include Integrity in Depth and Energies and Patterns in Psychological Type. With Virginia Apperson, he has co-authored The Presence of the Feminine in Film.
