Dr Lu will use three films as the springboard to exploring Jung’s notion of the persona: Wall Street (1987), The Mask (1994) and The Farewell (2019). While each film highlights the potentially pathological relationship one can have with one’s personas, they also convey the important role played by this archetypal imperative in personality development. As with all archetypes, the persona is bipolar in nature and entering into a more integral relationship with its various qualities and characteristics is central to the project of individuation.
