Tourette's Tics

Janet Merewether

1994, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


What do Gilles de la Tourette's disease, animal impersonators, Freud's patients and the Ancient Greeks have in common? Tourette's Tics is a short work which explodes the myth o the 'hysterical woman', a myth perpetuated by Sigmund Freud, who has been described by some as 'a reckless cocaine addict, guilty of mass plagiarism'. Tourette's Tics questions the authority of the 'expert in the white coat' and turns hysteria into the hysterical.
