Finding Freud

John Houston commissioned the French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre to write a film about Sigmund Freud. Little did he know the nightmare he was letting them both in for!

The 1960's. John Huston launched a movie project that seemed foolproof. He hired the great existentialist philosopher Jean Paul Sartre to write a film script about Sigmund Freud. Sartre was world-famous. And his known dislike of Freud would ensure publicity. But all did not go to plan.

Kenneth Cranham and Dervla Kirwan star in David Pownall's imagining of the comedy mayhem that ensued.
