Matter Of Heart

Carl Gustave Jung

Writer Suzanne Wagner
Composed by John Adams
Directed by Mark Whitney

Matter of Heart is a compelling portrait of Carl Gustav Jung, whose extraordinary genius and humanity reached far beyond the sometimes exclusive realm of psychiatry into redefining the essential nature of who we are and what we hope to become. More than a linear biography, the film presents a fuller perspective on this humanist, healer, friend, and mentor, through the skillful interweaving of rare home movies, valuable archival footage, and a wealth of interviews with such notables as Sir Laurens van der Post, Marie-Louise von Franz, and Joseph Henderson, M.D.


"As complete and in-depth a portrait of Carl Jung as we are ever likely to see on film." - L. A. Weekly

"Moving and provocative...the glory of this film is that it awakens an awareness of the infinite human potential..." - Kate Regan, The San Francisco Chronicle

"A loving consideration of the life and career of Carl Gustav Jung." - Vincent Canby, New York Times
