Amie Siegel, Empathy, 2003, 92'
Empathy reverses the psychoanalytic gaze back onto the psychoanalyst. Three genres—fiction, screen test & documentary interview—provoke questions about power, manipulation and understanding. A fictional narrative about a voice-over actress in psychoanalysis interweaves with “screen tests” of actresses auditioning for her role in Empathy, as well as interviews with actual psychoanalysts (Amie Siegel)
