- A critical look at electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT — often referred to as “electroshock.” The film traces the discovery of ECT in the late 1930s by Ugo Cerletti, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Rome. At that time, there was little by way of treatment for the growing number of patients housed in large psychiatric facilities. As the film shifts to the present, ECT’s current role in psychiatry is examined, along with the controversies surrounding its efficiency.
