Including a screening of Sigmund Freud's Dora: A case of mistaken identity. 1979, 40mins, cert PG. With Anthony McCall, Andrew Tyndall, Jane Weinstock and Ivan Ward, Pajaczkowska was responsible for an iconic film made in 1979 New York - Sigmund Freud's Dora. The film explores Freud's account of his first case study (the failed analysis of an 18-year-old woman), the marginal position of women in language and the representation of female sexuality in advertising and pornography. As a prelude to a screening of this celebrated film, Claire Pajaczkowska analyses Alfred Kubin's troubling representation of female sexuality, in drawings which anticipate Freud's identification of unconscious drives.
