Watch CBC Wild Docs online: Episode 21 Erotomania

This highly visual documentary takes us inside the mind of the Erotomaniac. Using a mixture of dynamic stylistic devices and computer-generated imagery, the film attempts to recreate a warped world as seen through their eyes. The film features people diagnosed with this Impulse Control Disorder and explores just how far their compulsions can really go. Erotomania is the delusional belief that someone is in love with you. A simple brush of the arm at the photocopy machine, or the way someone arranges their desk, can all be misinterpreted as signs of interest. From the unrequited love of a man still obsessed with a woman he hasn't seen or spoken to in 20 years to the sinister secret admirer who won't leave their victim alone. From celebrity stalkers, including the story of David Letterman's obsessed fan Margaret Ray, to the erotomaniac who will stop at nothing, including murder, to justify their love. But what makes them do it?
