The psychoanalysts of the Parisian Psychoanalytical Society, l’Inconscient c’est ça (“the unconscious is the id”.)
On the 29th April 2010 at the Café Clovis in Paris, the members of the Parisian Psychoanalytical Society, presided over by leading psychoanalyst Guy Massat, awarded the Lacanian Psychoanalysis Prizeto Tim Burton for his film “Alice in Wonderland”.
The jury, composed of twenty psychoanalysts, declared that the prologue and epilogue added in this film by Tim Burton to Lewis Carroll’s original work accurately interpret, with unequalled talent, delirious speech as a way of self-healing and recreating the harmony between the id, the ego and the superego , in accordance with Lacan’s teachings.
All Lewis Carroll’s characters, which Tim Burton interprets through his brilliance in this film, illustrate concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis.
