WR: Mysteries of the Organism
W.R – Misterije organizma
This surreal docu-fiction proves that the revolution will be sexual.
Yugoslavia-West Germany 1971
Dir Dušan Makavejev
With Milena Dravic´, Ivica Vidovic´, Jagoda Kaloper
This surreal documentary-fiction hybrid begins with an investigation into the life and work of controversial psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, who believed in the therapeutic, liberatory benefits of the orgasm. Makavejev’s film then explodes into a drama about a young woman’s sexual awakening, with a Stalin-like celebrity ice skater, of course. The revolution will be sexual.
