The Freud Museum presents Thinking Inside the Box: Freud On TV, a series of ultra-rare archival television screenings, which brings together an exciting and compelling combination of Freudian drama and psychoanalytic theory from the annals of terrestrial television history.

This event will screen Sigmund Freud’s Dora: A Case of Mistaken Identity, the milestone controversial film combining formalism, feminism and psychoanalysis. Made in 1979, this is the 40th anniversary of the film, which achieved iconic status as an independent production and is still debated today. It will be introduced by two of the filmmakers, Claire Pajaczkowska and Ivan Ward, and followed by a discussion with Dany Nobus and Susie Orbach. Curators Charlie Bligh, Colm McAuliffe and Dany Nobus will open the proceedings with a brief outline of the Freud On TV season along with an introduction to Freud’s case of ‘Dora’.

The script was published in Framework magazine in 1981, with an introduction by Claire Pajaczkowska that included some of the original film notes.
