Film Night//WR: Mysteries of the Organism (dir DuŠ ¡an Makavejev)


Door open: 7pm Screening begins promptly at 7:30 Introduction by film critic Adam Goldmann Yugoslavia 1971 85 minute, color German//Russian//English SYNOPSIS: What does the energy harnessed through orgasm have to do with the state of communist Yugoslavia circa 1971? Only counterculture filmmaker extraordinaire DuŠ ¡an Makavejev has the answers (or the questions). His surreal documentary-fiction collision WR: Mysteries of the Organism begins as an investigation into the life and work of controversial psychologist and philosopher Wilhelm Reich and then explodes into a free-form narrative of a beautiful young Slavic girl's sexual liberation. Banned upon its release in the director's homeland, the art-house smash WR is both whimsical and bold in its blending of politics and sexuality. - Criterion Films
