       NOTE:      Q & A Panel Discussions after each film showing


            The Way of the Dream is based on an extraordinary series of films made by Fraser Boa, who  collected

         first person accounts of dreams in street interviews with ordinary men and women in various parts of the

         world. He then asked Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz to interpret these dreams on film, just as she would in a 

         private analytical session. The resulting test is a primer explaining and demonstrating the art and science

         of dream analysis for the general public. The material covered includes dreams of men, dreams of women,

         what  dreams  tell  us  about  ourselves  and  our relationships,  the historical significance of dreams, and

         dreams about death and dying. Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz initially says that she thinks many people can-

         not understand  their dreams  without professional help.   Then  she provides a wealth of information and

         insight regarding frequently recurring symbolic dream themes and characters  (or personifications), such

         as the shadow, animus, anima, and the Center (higher Self). Included are film clips of people on the street

         talking about their own dreams.  Dr. von Franz concludes that one of  the  healthiest things people can do

         is to pay attention to their dreams:  "Dreams show us how to  find meaning in our lives,  how to fulfill our

         own destiny, how to realize the greater potential of life within us."

Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz  (b. 4 Jan 1915 - d. 17 Feb 1998)  was a Jungian psychologist and scholar. 

          Dr. von Franz  worked with Carl G. Jung, whom she met in Zürich, Switzerland in 1933  at the  age of 18,

          and collaborated with him until his death in 1961. In addition to her many books, Dr. von Franz recorded

          a series  of  films  in  1985 titled The Way of the Dream  with her student Fraser Boa.  She also wrote on

          alchemy, discussed from  the Jungian psychological perspective, and active imagination, which could be

          described as  conscious dreaming. 

Fraser Boa (b. 1932 - d. 1992) was a Jungian analyst, a Canadian filmmaker, and a student of Dr. Marie-

          Louise von Franz.  In 1985,  he  recorded  the famous  documentary series of films titled The Way of the

          Dream in conversation with Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz.   He was the brother of Jungian Analyst Marion

          Woodman and the late Canadian actor Bruce Boa.
