Nobody noticed when Joyce Vincent died in her bedsit above a shopping mall in North London in 2003. Her body wasn t discovered for three years, surrounded by Christmas presents she had been wrapping, and with the TV still on. Newspaper reports offered few details of her life - not even a photograph.
Who was she? And how could this happen to someone in our day and age- the so-called age of communication?
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.
A fascinating story, unhampered by some hokey-looking 'redramatizations.'Published 1 month ago by nomdeplume
