VENICE Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys , Italy, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- The film which makes Chinese American actress Joan Chen feel "a bit different" when she walks out of a theater is the one that she will vote for at the ongoing Venice film festival, where she is a member of the international jury this year.
The audience of journalists and cinema experts watching the premieres at the festival are curious to know what are the elements that more fascinate the members of the jury in their difficult task to award the Golden Lion, the highest prize given to a film in Venice.
The 71st Venice film festival has a motley jury including the jury president French musician Alexandre Desplat, famous for the soundtracks of important movies, and English costume designer Sandy Powell. Jhumpa Lahiri, an American author of Indian origin, and English actor Tim Roth are also in the nine-member group.
"Being part of this jury is a great experience for me," Joan Chen told Xinhua in an interview on Monday. One of the most renowned Chinese actresses in the world, she has starred in numerous films including The Last Emperor by Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci in 1987 and Se, Jie (Lust, Caution) by Ang Lee, winner of the Golden Lion in 2007.
Her true passion for cinema, Chen said, was born when she acted in The Last Emperor. That experience, she elaborated, shaped into her the idea of what cinema must be, that is to say the "creation of reality."
A good film, she noted, cannot and should not be totally identical to the real world, but all of its elements from costumes to music and colors must have the effect of "taking you into it and convincing you that it is telling something true."
For this reason, Chen stressed, although the stories of films are taken from the real world and can be told many times again, their "creation" in films involves a series of unique ideas.
"A good film has to strike you, you have to feel a little different when you leave the theater, you have to be enriched, challenged and perhaps questioned," said the Chinese actress, who has also directed the films Tian Yu (Xiu Xiu: The Sent Down Girl) in 1999 and Autumn in New York in 2000.
"I think it is the same thing as when cinema was born some 100 years ago. But what we have in addition today is a massive amount of technology which enables us to express better. Once a director knows technology and stays authentic and true to himself, the result is a movie that I would vote for," Chen explained to Xinhua.
She added she was eager to listen to the points of view of the other members of the jury. "I would love to hear how the costumes contributed to a particular film, or the music of it, it will be an extraordinary learning, and we also have great actors and directors in the jury," she said.
There are of course cultural differences in the group which counts members from different countries of the world including Germany, Britain, Italy, Palestine and the United States. "But I found just after having had one meeting so far that we share humanity, what we all want to see is something that reflects human condition," she pointed out.
For Chen, who has been three times at the Venice film festival, being this edition a member of the jury was a very important opportunity which she said she was "enjoying very much."
"After having watched about half of the 20 competition films so far, I am very confident that there will be no problem in making a decision as we are definitely seeing good works," she underlined.
Such a fascinating subject. It appears we're only starting to understand the potential of hypnosis, yet it's been used for hundreds of years.In this over view of hypnosis through the years, you might find yourself intrigued by a few of the conditions it has been used with.
In 1841 James Braid coined the term Hypnosis, but prior to that it had been known as Mesmerism. The main reason Braid felt compelled to change the name was due to new understandings in the way hypnosis actually works. In Mesmerism, practitioners believed in some special knowledge or unique power, and that for this reason, people entered the special state. But, James Braid realised that it was not down to any power the Mesmerist held, but instead the internal mental process of the subject that caused the hypnotic trance.
Emile Coue was inspired to publish a book on self-hypnosis. His system was based on Braids findings before him. The model of hypnosis being a self-induced frame of mind, instead of one dependent on power of the hypnotist was now becoming more popular. The result was more people could now benefit from this power to improve themselves.
Renowned psychologist and author Sigmond Freud famously rejected hypnosis as useless for analysis. Subsequent to this slandering of hypnosis, many academics shied away from using it. His opinion about hypnosis as an aid to therapy did change as he was exposed to applications of it, sadly this came just before he passed, after the print of his books. During this time the practise of hypnosis was continued by stage performers.
A well known style of hypnosis was created by Doctor Milton Erickson in the 50's. Therapists called his method indirect hypnosis, it was very different from the more classical methods used previously. Milton Erickson became well known for his work with clients who had trouble entering hypnosis with other hypnotists.
Circa the same time period as Psychologist Milton Erickson, a man called Dave Elman taught doctors and dentists a more traditional approach to hypnosis. Dave Elman taught a very traditional approach to hypnosis which was mostly used for pain control and in the field of hypnotherapy. His rapid hypnotic methods are still used by doctors who practise hypnosis today.
