The Red Book

A Feature


The "Red Book" is Carl G. Jung's carefully-crafted journal of his process of self-discovery, born out of a series of terrifying waking visions. Jung thought he was on the verge of losing his mind.

Now, 100 years since its creation, the private contents of this book have been made public for the first time. The Red Book documentary brings to life the astonishing story behind the Red Book and the man who created it.

"My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than only one life."
-Carl Jung
