C. G. Jung on Film

These film clips are collected from YouTube. The links sometimes change, but the content seems to persist with other file locations. If you do not find a specific film, try doing a YouTube search. Several other short selections appear from time to time, but most are extracted from these major film sources.


 

C. G. Jung: Face to Face -- The John Freeman Interview (1959)

Recorded for the BBC "Face to Face" TV series in 1959, this is the entire 40 minute interview with Dr. Jung, completed just 2 years before his death. As with many YouTube videos, this is originally copyrighted material, and occasionally a copy is removed. If you search YouTube, you will usually find another copy.

 


 

Jung on Film: The Richard Evans Interviews (1957)

Filmed in 1957 by Dr. Richard I. Evans for the Department of Psychology, University of Houston. Dr. Evans conducted four one-hour interviews with Jung at the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule (ETH, Federal Institute of Technology), in Zurich, on August 5-8, 1957. They were filmed as part of an educational project designed for students of the psychology department. The four hours of interviews are here edited to about 77 minutes. (A complete and accurate verbatim transcript of the interviews appears in: C. G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, ed. William McGuire and R. F. C. Hull.)

Evans is not a great interviewer, but Jung compensates well. And this is a very important documentary record. (The online copy offered here is an acceptable video transfer of the VCR edition.) Again ,just sit down and meet Dr. Jung.

As with many YouTube videos, this is originally copyrighted material, and occasionally a copy is removed. If you search YouTube, you will usually find another copy.

Archival film showing Jung working on his "Aion Lapis" at the Tower

This film footage was shot between about 1946 and 1951. It shows Jung beginning and finishing work on his famous stone at the Tower in Bollingen. The film segments were edited together in 1991, in a rather amateur way. People ask, "Who is the younger woman frequently seen in the film with Jung (usually smoking a cigarette)?" This is Marie-Jeanne Schmid. Schmid was the daughter of Jung's friend Hans Schmid, who died in 1932. She worked as Jung's secretary for over 20 years, and was a very close friend to the family. Thus in this film you see her at Jung's side, shuffling letters and papers, getting books, and eating lunch with Dr. and Mrs. Jung. (Around 1953 Marie-Jeanne married and retired from working for Jung. This was quite a disaster for Jung. Eventually he found the help of Aniela Jaffe, who served as Jung's secretary up until his death in 1961. In 1957 Jaffe conducted the interviews with Jung which she edited into his memoir Memories, Dreams, Reflections.)
