Crazy story: January 2006, officials from a north London housing association broke into a bedsit only to discover the body of a young woman surrounded by a small pile of unopened Christmas presents, BBC1 still flickering on her television. She had been dead for a long time. A really long time. Food in the refrigerator was marked with 2003 expiry dates. Her name was later revealed to be Joyce Vincent.
Her extraordinary story is the subject of a new movie, Dreams of a Life, by film-maker Carol Morley:
To promote the film, the game-design studio Hide&Seek has developed Dreams of Your Life, a haunting interactive companion website with text by writer A L Kennedy and photography by Lottie Davies.
Dreams of a Life is in UK cinemas from 16th December 2011
