Description

Freud’s Lost Lecture is a six minute Artists’ film made in collaboration with the twice Man Booker shortlisted author Deborah Levy. The film was created in three acts for screening as separate parts on Instagram. The six minute version is intended for cinema and festival screenings.
Levy imagines a lost lecture written by Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. It investigate a hysterical woman dancing through time, snow leopards lapping milk in the kitchen of Freud’s last house, and a journey under the ground on a ghost train.
The images, created by Thorburn, place the dancing woman in natural and man-made scenarios. Creatures are reconstructed from their basic elements in the way you might recognise them in dreams.
