The Lacan Hour is a 45 minute documentary created by Erich Kuersten for the Structuralist Televison Workshop. Using the children's
educational telvision programming of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) format as a jumping off point, Mr. Kuersten takes
a slightly satirical, baffled, byzantine look at the theories of Jacques Lacan and modern psychiatry. Topics touched on include
the death drive, the memento mori, the imaginary-symbolic-real, the mirror stage, the phallus, the concept of the "variable
hour," the remainder- aka "das ding" - and much much more. Replete with songs, claymation, and a final epiphany
on the shores of Coney Island, this is one hour you wont want to miss!
