Every spring, the Museum of Fine Arts proudly presents Hollywood Scriptures, a series of films curated by faculty in the Department of Professional Psychology at William James College. This year, the theme is Moral Dilemmas. The films in this year’s series raise unsettling questions about right and wrong, and decisions between moral imperatives where none are acceptable or preferable. From legal judgments about life and death, to the global boom-bust economy, to a secret “nature versus nurture” study, each of the films confronts the viewer with a number of moral ambiguities to untangle.
Each screening is followed by a discussion with William James College faculty members examining the film through the lens of professional psychology.
