Salvador Dalí joined the Surrealist movement in 1929, rapidly embracing psychoanalytical ideas to produce paintings that deliberately portrayed landscapes of paranoia.

From the beginning of his career and his collaboration on Un Chien Andalou (1929), cinema also contributed to Dalí's understanding of the power and the uses of illusion. In 1944 Dalí signed a contract with Vanguard Films for work on Alfred Hitchcock's film Spellbound, at the time considered an ambitious exploration of Freudian psychoanalysis.

This talk explores the potent mix of film and psychoanalysis in Dalí's work and in particular his innovative contribution to Hitchcock's film.
