Filmvorführung - The strange case of Wilhelm Reich
The Strange Case of Wilhelm Reich, the new film by Austrian filmmaker Antonin Svoboda, will see its U.S. Premiere within the framework of the New York Jewish Film Festival 2014 at Lincoln Center, where it will be screened on January 16. at 12:30 PM and Jan 18. at 6:30 PM.
The Austrian psychiatrist, scientist and the inventor of the orgone box, Wilhelm Reich fled from the Nazis to the U.S. in 1939. He continued his forays in experimental sciences in Maine and the Arizona desert. A true believer in this theory of a life-force energy called orgone, he devoted his life to research with the ultimate goal of bettering humanity. His sometimes eccentric activities raised suspicions during the paranoid 1950s, leading to criminal charges and a prison sentence. This stirring and handsomely made biopic stars the incomparable Klaus Maria Brandauer as Reich.
Director Antonin Svoboda will attend the screenings in person for a Q&A!
