The Other Side of the Underneath + Lecture on psychosis
Jane Arden | 1972 | UK | 132’ | no subs
The Other Side of the Underneath, directed by playwright, actress, poet and screenwriter Jane Arden, is an adaptation of Arden's play A New Communion for Freaks, Prophets, and Witches. It is the only British feature film in the 1970s to be solely directed by a woman; a film about a group of female patients in a therapy session. A radical and experimental film, intriguing because of its disturbing depictions of the mental state of its schizophrenic protagonist.
