2021. 4' 25'', digital animation video, color, no sound.
Today it is impossible to imagine the world and our understanding of sexuality and gender without psychoanalysis. But what if Sigmund Freud had died before its invention? Inspired by time-travel stories, The Early Death of Sigmund Freud imagines the possibility of sending nanobots back in time to implant a brain disease in Freud before he invented psychoanalysis. While the nanobots go about their business inside Freud’s skull, we watch a list of key moments in Freud’s life and when best to kill him.
