In my suite of short films ‘Freud and Breuer’s Erotomania’ I evoke a return to the language of the hysteric through the mouths of analysts. By taking the words of the analysts where they refer to themselves in the first person I re-author the case-studies of hysteria, implying and suggesting a different version of events (of hysteries) relating to counter-transference, through the elasticity of language.
