Year

Duration
52’
Director
Andrei Zagdansky

This Freudian feature documentary, produced during perestroika, introduced the world of Freud’s ideas to audiences in the former Soviet Union for the first time, since his works had been banned by Communist Party censorship. The film is structured as a journey through time starting from the Lumière brothers’ Arrival of a Train, presented in 1896 (the year when Freud published his Interpretation of Dreams) to 1939, when Freud died. The film juxtaposes a dialog between the filmmaker and the patriarch of psychoanalyses himself with the history of the Soviet Union and Europe.
