Filmaker John Boorman and analyst Christopher Hauke talk about the Red Book

Talk to Me: Filmmaker John Boorman

from The Red Book W.W. Norton       2009

In the Red Book Dialogues, the invited guest (John Boorman in this case) is shown an image from the Red Book for the first time and asked to associate to it. [Boorman was director of Point Blank, Deliverance, Excalibur, Emerald Forest.]

John Boorman said immediately this was the well known Serpent figure, but it had too many legs. He also talked about the myth of the snakes being driven out of Ireland by Saint Patrick.

This presentation here doesn’t have the electricity and chemistry that Kaufman and Beebe had, but still quite worthwhile and interesting. It ends up being more about Boorman than about Jung.

(I would note the Hauke is also a filmmaker, a rare and important talent among Jungian analysts.)
