Here's some first look clips of Dreams Of Life, a documentary-style drama that uncovers the mysterious death of Joyce Vincent, a 38 year old female discovered dead in her London flat three years after her death.

Here's a recap of what we've posted so far...

Joyce Carol Vincent was born in Hammersmith, in West London (UK) in 1965 to Lyris and Lawrence, a young couple from Grenada in the Caribbean.

By all accounts, she lived an average life, working corporate jobs for much of her life, living all over London.

In 2006, Joyce’s skeleton was discovered in her apartment, cause of death unknown. However, it was later determined that Joyce actually died 3 years earlier, in 2003, at age 38. So, essentially her skeleton was found in her London flat three years after she died. However, little to nothing was known about her at the time of her death.

This film is said to be “a quest to discover who she was,” essentially piecing back together the puzzle that was her life, and how she could have laid dead, forgotten in her apartment for 3 years, before being discovered. It interweaves interviews with imagined scenes from Joyce’s life.

The website for the film states..."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."

Directed by Carol Morley, the film stars British actress Zawe Ashton, as Joyce Vincent and will be screening at the London Film Festival on October 16th and 18th.
