Using the story of Freud's emigration from Vienna to London in 1938

as a starting point, the short film The Hope, by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Susan Steinberg, highlights the significance and importance of objects for

those who are forced to flee their home.

In Vienna, filming included never-before-seen images of Freud's private rooms,

interviews with the director of the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna,

Monika Pessler, and the artist Paul Coldwell, who guides us in this emotional process of creation and transformation.

The short film was screened as part of Paul Coldwell's exhibition

"Temporarily Accessioned: Freud's Coat Revisited"

at the Freud Museum London

23 February to 7 May 2017
