'The Love of Statues'
The film uses puppets and automata as human surrogates, and combines original material with found-footage and archive photographs. The idea of hypnosis occurs throughout, notably in the records of its use in the treatment of hysteria at the Salpetriere Asylum in 19th century Paris.
