A Matter of The Heart is a documentary about the famous Swiss psychiatrist/psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung, featuring archive footage of Jung as well as interviews with Jung's former pupils, friends and colleagues. It examines Jung's life and times, focusing on his ideas, particularly about the collective unconscious.

The psyche is the greatest of all cosmic wonders and the sine qua non of the world as an object. It is in the highest degree odd that Western man, with but very few -- and ever fewer -- exceptions, apparently pays so little regard to this fact. Swamped by the knowledge of external objects, the subject of all knowledge has been temporarily eclipsed to the point of seeming nonexistence.

A Matter of The Heart is a compelling portrait of Carl Gustav Jung, whose extraordinary genius and humanity reached far beyond the sometimes exclusive realm of psychiatry into redefining the essential nature of who we are and what we hope to become.

More than a linear biography, the film presents a fuller perspective on this humanist, healer, friend, and mentor, through the skillful interweaving of rare home movies, valuable archival footage, and a wealth of interviews with such notables as Sir Laurens van der Post, Marie-Louise von Franz, and Joseph Henderson, M.D.
