Film Screening: "Fear Of Fear" (Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1975, 88 min, Germany, German w/ subtitles, Color, Digital) A woman in a stable but passionless marriage begins to lose her mind when she becomes pregnant with her second child. Liquor, valium, and music prove cold comfort in a ruthless, alienating world. A made-for-tv melodrama only Fassbinder could conceive. -- About the BrainCultures Series: This series, programmed with the BrainCultures Lab, explores the plural lives of the brain as a socially and culturally constituted object.
