Caroline Pick and Lisa Appignanesi: Retrieving Lost Memories

Caroline Pick
Lisa Appignanesi

Caroline Pick’s Home Movie is a beautifully constructed film capturing the previously veiled story of her parents’ lives in 1930s Czechoslovakia and her own childhood in 1950s Britain. An artist, film-maker and former commissioning editor at the BBC, Caroline’s editing skills have shaped a powerful testimony to a lost world. She will be talking with Lisa Appignanesi about family secrets and the relationship between past and present.

Caroline Pick is an artist, film-maker and former commissioning editor at the BBC and Channel 4.

Lisa Appignanesi is a prize-winning author and cultural commentator. A visiting professor at King’s College London, she is a former president of British PEN and chair of the Freud Museum. Her new novel is Trials of Passion.
