According to the experts, there are very big similarities between being hypnotized and watching a film. That is why the Goteborg Film Festival in Sweden is including a unique experiment with mass hypnosis.
An event dubbed “The Hypnotic Cinema” will examine what happens with the film experience if you dare to lose control over your consciousness by being hypnotized.
There will be three separate screenings of this. Before each, a hypnotist will perform mass hypnosis to transform the audience’s state of mind in accordance with the mood and theme of the movie being shown.
After the screening, the hypnotist will then break the hypnosis.
The festival opens January 28th.
