Bagdad Cafe: Integrating the Opposites

Free to Members Non-members $15.00
A witty, offbeat comedy with winning performances by German actress Marianne Sagebrecht, Jack Palance, and C. C. H. Pounder—an oddball cast of characters. The setting is the Mojave Desert, the characters make up a most dysfunctional family/community, and there’s a cafe that can’t serve coffee. The soundtrack includes the haunting song “Calling You.”
James Palmer, Ph.D. is professor emeritus of Film Studies and a President’s Teaching Scholar at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After 43 years of teaching at CU and the past 16 years as director of the Conference on World Affairs, he is now doing R & R, writing and recreating. For many years he taught his favorite course – Jung, Film, and Literature – and a century ago, he graduated with an undergraduate degree in English from Dartmouth College, and a Ph.D. in Film and Literature from Claremont Graduate School. His articles on Jung and film have appeared in several journals, including Spring, Psychological Perspectives, Literature/Film Quarterly and Jung Journal.
