CREAM Screen Presents:
Freud's Lost Lecture
Dream interpretations and re-imaginings in the films of Deborah Levy and Jane Thorburn, Daria Martin, Catherine Yass.
With a reading by Deborah Levy.
'If the birth of psychoanalysis offered methods to investigate the unconscious mind, there is no doubt that personal and political conflicts, and above all rage and hopelessness, continue to speak through the body in our own century.' Deborah Levy.
In Freud's Lost Lecture, the writer Deborah Levy imagines a lost lecture written by Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, accompanied by the dream-like images of the film-maker Jane Thorburn. In One of the Things that Makes Me Doubt (2010-11), artist Daria Martin returns to her late grandmothers dream diaries, spoken through the voices of the actors and collaborators of Martin's films. Catherine Yass' Waking Dream (2008) shares her dream recollections as video diary.
Deborah Levy will give a reading relating to Freud's Lost Lecture, and will be in conversation with Jane Thorburn and artist Catherine Yass about the legacy of Freud's dream analysis for creative reinterpretations of the unconscious mind.
If You Don’t Know Me’ is the untold and ultimately inspiring story of legendary soul singer Teddy Pendergrass, the man who was poised to become the biggest R&B artist of all time until the tragic accident that changed his life.
The unforgettable lead vocalist of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and their classic songs such as‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’ and ‘I Miss You’, Teddy subsequently became the first solo male African American artist to record four consecutive platinum albums in theUS, but his career was struck by tragedy in 1982 when a car accident left him paralysed at the age of just 31. He later made a triumphant comeback in front of a global audience of 1.9 billion at Live Aid. Featuring revealing interviews with his family, friends and colleagues alongside industry legends Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, rarely seen archive footage and a soulful soundtrack, this insightful and moving documentary captures Teddy’s rise to fame against the complex backdrop of 1960’s America and his victorious comeback after his life-changing accident.
