    Screening and Discussion of “The Dead”

    Friday, December 9, 2011
    7:30 PM

    New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, in conjunction with the A.A. Brill Library, present a screening and psychoanalytic discussion of John Huston’s The Dead with NYPSI member Dr. Francis Baudry.

    New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute
    247 East 82nd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues)
    The Marianne & Nicholas Young Auditorium


    The Dead is the last film that Huston directed and it was released posthumously in 1987. The film stars his daughter Angelica Huston and his son, Tony Huston wrote the screenplay, which was nominated for an Academy Award. The film is based on James Joyce’s 1914 short story collection Dubliners. Joyce (1882–1941) finished writing Dubliners in 1905, at the age of 23, but did not find a publisher until 1914.

    Dr. Francis Baudry is a senior member at the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and a training analyst. He has written widely about the application of psychoanalytic understanding to works of literature, including Keats, Flaubert, Kafka, and Faulkner. Dr. Baudry will discuss what happens when a story is translated into a film. What are the gains? What are the losses? Literature and cinema each have their separate language and means of expressing affects and psychic contents.

    Matthew von Unwerth is Director of the A. A. Brill Library and author of Freud’s Requiem and is the organizer for the NYPSI Centenary Cinema Series.
