Citizen :

I'm Not Losing My Mind, I'm Giving It Away

Citizen: I am not losing my mind, I'm giving it away.

This film follows a group of anonymous young people on an apparently random journey through a disjointed San Francisco cityscape. Along their travels they encounter a succession of madmen and eccentrics, portrayed by various West Coast performance artists, whose impassioned monologues and improvisations satirize the institutions of contemporary American society. Featuring: Stoney Burke, Bob Carroll, Whoopi Goldberg (in her first screen appearance), Darryl Henriques, Murray Korngold, Pons Maar, John O'Keefe and Michael Peppe. 

16mm, color, sound, 75 minutes. 1981-82
