A young woman hugs a seated man from behind in an office setting
A humorous, colour portrait of a bespectacled young woman in a bright blue jacket who is tightly hugging a seated man from behind, in an office setting. The man looks like he is fantasizing about something pleasant. Behind them is a bookcase full of reference books. This image was shot while filming Will the Great Barrier Reef cure Claude Clough? 1967: This bizarre little film takes the form of a psychiatric session, using the metaphor as a way to explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. When people on the street seem to be walking backwards or upside down, Claude Clough (Charles Little) seeks therapy. His psychoanalyst (June Thody) advises him to take a holiday and get back to basics. From the psychoanalyst's couch, Claude's journey begins, with the psychoanalyst playing the roles of flight attendant, beautiful local girl and mermaid. The result is a tourist film with a difference - including stunning footage of the Great Barrier Reef. A lighthearted parody of psychoanalysis with a decidedly 60s feel
