Madness In Four Actions

Experimental Canada 2008 No dialogue-English Texts 0:09:00

This video was made to talk about abuse in psychiatry, which I experienced in Montreal. However, I chose to let others words explain my feelings on the topic. The visuals are recontextualized shots from The Miracle Worker, starring Patty Duke as Helen Keller. Duke went on to develop bipolar disorder, like me.
The main sound used in this video is from the radio emissions captured by the Cassini space probe from Saturn.

Inspirée par sa propre expérience d’abus en psychiatrie à Montréal, Thirza Cuthand déconstruit puissamment des hypothèses sur la psychiatrie.
