Filmmaker Julia Vickers

Julia Vickers

Julia is the director of the forthcoming: Jungian Archetype in Film. Julia Vickers has been a video producer and writer in the Washington DC area for over 15 years. She has worked for local television stations WDCA and PBS Channel 13, and independent films as well. She has been long been fascinated with Jungian psychology and has studied it with the Jung Society of Washington for many years. Her film, Jungian Archetype in Film, marries her two loves—film and archetypal psychology. “No creative medium mimics the collective unconscious better than film. We sit in a darkened room with anonymous others watching the images and hearing their stories. Despite the technology that allows us to view a movie anytime, anywhere, we still go to movie theaters. It is a collective experience.”
