From the venue:A foray into the comic side of life, this 1967 film depicts what happens when Dr. Sidney Schaefer is offered the job of the President's Analyst. At first, he feels honored and thrilled. Then the initial joy deteriorates as the stress of the job, and the paranoid spies that come with a sensitive government position, send him literally running. Patrick Blanchfield of the Emory Psychoanalytic Institute and the Emory Psychoanalytic Studies Program will present this film with a lighthearted Lacanian look at themes of paranoia, language, and alterity.
