Abstract (English)

Pseudo-documentary account of the case of schizophrenic/medium Richard Freeman, particularly of his psychic contacts with "Culture X". Visual and written evidence of this matriarchal culture culminate in a brief diaristic section which outlines the patient's (artist's) concerns with passivity, castration, paralysis, pregnancy and feminity.
