Deej screened as part of America ReFramed on PBS World in the USA this week. The film tells the inspiring story of DJ Savarese: a young American poet and playwright with severe autism, as he struggles to gain independence and a place at a mainstream university. The film includes sequences of my oil-painted animation bringing to life DJ’s poetry and his inner world. Whilst the film is not out in the UK yet, the DVD is available through the film’s website: https://www.deejmovie.com/

The National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis announced this year’s winners of the Gradiva Awards at their ceremony in New York City this weekend. The awards were inspired by Freud’s essay Delusions and Dreams in Jensen’s Gradiva, with an aim to recognise creative contributions to the advancement of psychoanalytic understanding. I feel honoured to be chosen as the winner in the film category. http://naap.org/website/gradiva-winners
