“A TRULY BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF FILM ART...
A CINEMATIC TRIUMPH.”
JOSEPH MONTVILLE, Director of Healing Historic Memory,
Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution
AN AMAZING, MOVING FILM ABOUT THE UNCONSCIOUS DYNAMICS, GROUP IDENTITIES, & SHARED TRAUMA THAT LIE BEHIND POLITICAL MOVEMENTS.
ED SHAPIRO, Clinical Professor, Yale Child Study Center
BLIND TRUST is about the peacemaking work of Vamik Volkan, a psychoanalyst who has spent a lifetime bringing enemy groups together for dialogue in traumatized regions of the globe.
Professor Volkan is at the forefront of understanding societal conflict from a psychological perspective. His field work in conflict resolution is unparalleled.
The film recounts Volkan's journey in unofficial diplomacy working in The Middle East, Estonia, the former Yugoslavia and The Republic of Georgia. The story dramatizes the new vocabulary he created for understanding large group psychology.
ONE CAN SEE IN THIS FILM A SPECIAL AURA AROUND THIS MAN WHO HAS MANAGED TO WITNESS THE WORST OF HUMANITY YET BRING FAITH AND LOVE TO THE SADDEST ”
