This film was screened on WNET and produced in association with the Ontological-Hysteric Theater Co. In this autobiographical work, Richard Foreman performs his own aesthetics, psychological view, and internal dilemmas confronting both the material and ethereal worlds. Provocateur performers Ron Vawter and Kate Manheim, together with other friends from Paris and New York, appear in the piece as well.
