"And Now, Love" Documentary Screening and Filmmaker Q&A at Santa Monica Public Library
September 26, 2018
Santa Monica Public Library presents And Now, Love, a documentary screening and post-film discussion on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library’s Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
And Now, Love is a documentary memoir on the life and world of Dr. Bernard W. Bail, a highly decorated World War II Jewish veteran who was captured by the Nazis and rescued by a secret love affair with his German nurse—a pivotal experience that exposed him to a new world of spirituality and feelings and ultimately to the power of the feminine. Dedicated to healing mental anguish, he became a doctor and psychoanalyst who continued where Freud stopped, developing the “mother’s imprint,” a radical new theory that strikes at the root of all mental illness. Bail believes it is the centuries of abuse and oppression women have suffered that has brought us to this tipping point and that “women must have a place at the table if there’s to be peace in the world.” The documentary’s runtime is 95 min.
A Q&A with 97-year-old Dr. Bail, film writer/director/producer Jill Demby Guest, and film contributor and clinical psychologist Dr. Loren Weiner follows the screening. To view the trailer and find out more about Dr. Bail, visit the film’s website at andnowlovethemovie.com.
