Tourette's Tics

Janet Merewether
1994

Tourette's Tics is a short experimental mock-documentary which explodes the myth of the 'hysterical woman', a myth perpetuated by Sigmund Freud, who has been described by some as 'a reckless cocaine addict, guilty 
of mass plagarism. Tourette's Tics questions the authority of the 'expert in the white coat', and transforms hysteria into the hysterical.
