Monday Night Movies: WR: Mysteries of the Organism in 35mm

April 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- $10

Perhaps the most unique (partially) made-in-Maine movie ever produced. What does the energy harnessed through orgasm have to do with the state of communist Yugoslavia circa 1971? Only counterculture filmmaker extraordinaire Dušan 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, centering on his “Orgone accumulator” and work in Rangeley, Maine in the 1950s, and then explodes into a free-form narrative of a beautiful young Slavic woman’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. 1971. Unrated but not for younger audiences. In English, and in Serbo-Croatian with English subtitles. 85 Min.
