Watch Lorraine Mangione’s presentation on Shutter Island

Lorraine Mangione, core faculty member in AUNE’s Department of Clinical Psychology, “happens to be obsessed” with Shutter Island, she says. The film, directed by Italian-American Martin Scorsese, was the focus for Mangione’s talk about the film at the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute’s conference on Italian culture, April 28-30 in New York City.

The title of the conference was “Three Fs in Italian Cultures: Critical Approaches to
Food, Fashion and Film.” Mangione’s presentation was called “It’s way over the top . . . You know, that’s how Scorsese is: A Psychological Perspective on the Layers of Illusion in Shutter Island.

She also presented two papers at the Calandra Institute’s first conference on Italian-Americans, mental health and wellness last October.
