The Interpretation of Dreams


DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN: One of Freud’s most famous cases is one that he considered a failure. At the turn of the twentieth century, he began treating an eighteen-year-old girl for hysteria, but after less than three months of therapy “Dora” left without being cured, at least according to Freud. His writings on this girl were published a few years later, but it wasn’t until over half a century later that it became a focus for feminist psychoanalytic studies. On Tuesday night, Light Industry will be screening a 1979 film called Sigmund Freud’s Dora: A Case of Mistaken Identity, which highlights the era’s concerns with feminist studies and psychoanalysis, and mixes television advertisements, pornography, and dialogues to illuminate the text.
