Why You, Why Anyone

Ric Amis

1988, 16:00 minutes, colour, English


A surreal look at the conformity that prevails within institutions. The videotape moves the viewer through the situations found in a mental health institution and conveys how our lives are molded by a particular structure that has almost no interest in individuality or personality.
