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.


…as part of the Gazelle Twin/Carla MacKinnon night at the London Short Film Festival, Thursday 15th Jan. The event is also touring to Bristol Watershed and FACT Liverpool later in the year.
