An experiment in filmed psychotherapy
A relationship between two people can develop in any imaginable setting. A person can learn to love or hate, to trust or distrust, to understand or misunderstand another person in a crowded prison or concentration camp or in a lonely lifeboat. The external conditions become background and receive less attention as the relationship unfolds and increasingly involves the attention of the protagonists. If this holds true in other human relationships, it should also hold true in psychotherapy.
