    David Cronenberg’s first feature. Proffered as an educational film from the fictional Canadian Academy of Erotic Enquiry, the film documents telepathic experiments conducted on a group of young people.

    Shot in silent black-and-white with clinical voice-over narration, I found the film near-impenetrable, yet intriguing. It lacks an overt narrative, but the thematic through-line to Cronenberg’s Scanners proves evident.
