Carol Morley’s drama-documentary investigates the tragic death of Joyce Vincent, whose body lay undetected for almost three years.

Nobody noticed when Joyce Vincent died in her bedsit above a shopping mall in Wood Green, North London in 2003. Her skeletal remains wasn’t discovered for three years, surrounded by Christmas presents she had been wrapping, and with the TV still on. Due to advanced decomposition, the cause of death was unable to be determined.

Newspaper reports offered few details of her life– not even a photograph. Interweaving interviews with imagined scenes from Joyce’s life, DREAMS OF A LIFE is an imaginative, powerful, multilayered quest, and is not only a portrait of Joyce but a portrait of London in the eighties—the City, music, and race. It is a film about urban lives, contemporary life, and how, like Joyce, we are all different things to different people. It is about how little we may ever know each other, but nevertheless, how much we can love.

The film confronts issues such as loneliness, even while living in one of the busiest cities, how loss of contact with family and friends can cause no one to notice a missing relative or friend, and how a body can go unnoticed in a room feet away from a busy street, without repercussions from unpaid rent and utilities.

Guest Speakers to be announced.

Doors open 18.00 for drinks and food.

Film Screening 18.30 (91 mins) followed by Panel discussion.

Admission open to ALL, non Labour Party members welcome.

Refreshments will be available in the licensed bar until 21:30 with drinks allowed into screening.
