This annual screening-and-discussion series continues in February with more psychological studies of films helmed by female directors.
Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes. The post-screening discussion is led by psychoanalyst Marilyn Metzl and film critic Vivian Kane.
Presented in partnership with the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center.
