Psychic Driving deals with experiments on unwitting subjects involving hallucinogenic drugs and massive doses of electroshock. One of the subjects, the wife of a member of the Canadian Parliament, speaks out in an interview. The psychiatrist in charge, Dr. Ewen Cameron, treated patients in three stages - sleep therapy, psychic driving, and de-patterning - to destroy depressed personalities and then build them back up again. His funding came from the CIA. The source material of Psychic Driving is a VHS tape recorded from a 1979 television broadcast, and is the only existing copy in the National Archives of the United States. The tape's degradation inspired frame-by-frame animation involving hundreds of passes of filters in Photoshop.
