"Dr. Frank Ochberg is a psychiatrist and trauma specialist in New York. His specialty is post-traumatic stress disorders and Stockholm syndrome. The famous Cuban artist Tania Bruguera, after having been a prisoner of conscience in Cuba for eight months, is accused of treason for the preparation of a government-critical performance. In a conversation with the therapist, she analyzes the revolutionary potential of art and a censorship authority that intervenes before the actual genesis of the work. Performance art, with its short-term, spontaneous and ephemeral element Bruguera can not be discouraged; six months after her release, she invites artists from all over the world to Cuba." (Berlinale Nighttalk, Radio Eins)
