LOS ANGELES — Screen Door Entertainment is set to produce "Healing Hyapatia," a new documentary detailing '80s porn icon Hyapatia Lee's ongoing battle with multiple personality disorder.

Lee — legal name is Victoria Lynch — was diagnosed at a young age with Dissociative Identity Disorder. According to Lee, Hyapatia is just one of seven unique personalities inhabiting her body and mind.

"Vicki doesn't know what Hyapatia does and Hyapatia has no idea what Vicki does," Lee said in a Screen Door Entertainment press release.

"One time I made an appearance as Hyapatia Lee and then blacked out. When I woke up as Vicki, I had no recollection of what I had done or what happened. It was horrifying."

"Healing Hyapatia" will follow Lee as she explores conventional, alternative and experimental therapies for her disorder. The film will also reconnect Lee with some of her old school porn peers.

"I've lost so many friends in this industry to suicide," Lee said. "I want to talk with those who survived to see what I can learn from them and find out how they were able to overcome their own obstacles."

"Healing Hyapatia" will be directed by Dave Garrison, who co-produces with Screen Door Entertainment CEO Joel Rizor. In an effort to retain creative control on the project, the duo announced plans to launch a Kickstarter.com fund to finance the bulk of the film.
