Chronic is an experimental narrative about a young woman who began mutilating herself as a girl to cope with a traumatic mid-western childhood. The lush optically-printed scenes take Gretchen’s point of view from her punk youth, a stay in a mental hospital, and her release into the big city. Scripted scenes are inter-spliced with documentary and found footage, illustrating the culture Gretchen lives in, her inner world and relationships from her birth to her final day.
In addition to the selection released on VHS in 1996 this DVD contains rarely seen experimental work from the 1970s and a slideshow of storyboards and commentary on A LITTLE ROUTINE. Holding more than 2 hours of indexed material GRIFFITI is an ideal tool
