Art & Mind, Dir. Amélie Ravalec, UK, 2019, 70 min., English and French with English subtitles

The emergence of the unconscious inspired Romantic artists to explore the hidden realms of dreams and visions in their art. Emerging psychology theories of Sigmund Freud and his contemporaries later became a major source of inspiration for the Surrealists.
