Zoe Beloff - The Dream Films

Zoe Beloff - The Dream Films (2009) at UbuWeb Film & Video. "...In 2009 the Coney Island Museum invited Zoe Beloff to create an exhibition to celebrate the centennial of Sigmund Freud's visit to Coney Island. She titled the show 'Dreamland: The Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society and its Circle 1926-1972.' The Society might be considered something of an urban myth. They were mostly working people from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Beloff describes them as 'visionaries, who, undeterred by lack of finances or professional training, decided to explore their inner life, to share their dreams with each other and in doing so attempted to free the psyche from the constraints of class and of cultural and sexual mores of their time.' Featured on Ubu are the ten films from this series."
