Footage from both hidden and visibly present cameras captures the treatments applied at a psychiatric hospital in Ohio under the supervision of Jeffrey Paull in 1967. His patients also took pictures and recorded one another on film. Almost fifty years later, this footage was accompanied by an audio commentary of one of them – autistic Donna – speaking about her long-gone self and fragments of her perception of images of herself and of others.

The habitus of the therapeutic suggests a distinction between different identities: one’s own current and past self, one’s personality and the boundaries of the other residents of the hospital.
