LUNATICS AND ACTORS features a demonstration of Duchenne’s experiments on 3 of his patients from a lunatic asylum in Paris. But there is a twist. Driven by his ambition to prove the mastery in his methods of generating authentic emotion, Duchenne decides to compare the results of his experiments on the lunatics with the “emotional authenticity” of an actor, whom he selects at random from the audience. And that’s when things get really strange.
