Who is Afraid of Wilhelm Reich


The fame of Wilhelm Reich, whose ideas are nowadays anew experiencing a renaissance, especially in the USA, is based on two pillars: The concept of Sexual Revolution and the concept of Orgone Energy.
The film by Antonin Svoboda describes equally informative as well as concise the origin of both concepts as rooted in the life of Wilhelm Reich, embedded in 20th Century History.
It is very well suitable for an introduction to life and work of Reich, though not totally objective.
