Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
The annual Searching the Psyche through Cinema series returns for an examination of the most deliberately neurotic American filmmaker, Woody Allen.

The post-film discussion leaders are psychoanalyst Marilyn Metzl and Kansas City Art Institute professor Julie Farstad.
