As a prelude to the Spaces of the Unconscious conference on Saturday 9th October, we are delighted to announce a special screening of Jan Š vankmajer's new film Surviving Life (Theory and Practice).
'Eugene (Václav Helsus) leads a double life - married to Milada, he also dreams of the beautiful Evgenia (Klára Issová). Seeking to perpetuate his dream life, he goes to see a psychoanalyst, who attempts to provide an ongoing interpretation of his experiences. On the wall are portraits of Freud and Jung, which become animated, alternately applauding, disapproving or fighting over her'.
The screening has been authorised by Jan Š vankmajer and will be introduced by Krzysztof Fijalkowski (Norwich University College of the Arts)
