The Individuation Process

The Individuation Process: An Exploration of the Movie Central Station (Walter Salles, 1998)

In Central Station a cynical, joyless woman (Dora) crosses paths with a lonely boy (Josue) who is looking for his father. Together, they go on a long journey into places geographically and psychologically unknown to them.

After watching the movie, we will discuss themes found in the movie that relate to the Individuation Process: meeting with the shadow, answering the call, dealing with crisis, the manifestation of the transcendent, the renewal through the child archetype and the theme of sacrifice: finding the treasure and letting it go.
