This film presents the world of photographer Ted Serios, a charismatic Chicago bell hop who, in the mid-1960’s produced hundreds of Polaroid images from his mind. Constructed from 16 mm documentation of Serios’s sessions and audio recordings of Serios speaking with Dr. Jule Eisenbud, his Denver psychiatrist, the film is more ethnography than biography, portraying the social and scientific environments in which Serios thrived.
