Wilhelm Reich Documentary: Final Post-Production

Wilhelm Reich Documentary: Final Post-Production

Hello.  This is Jim Strick, author of the 2015 Harvard University Press book, Wilhelm Reich, Biologist.

Research on that book was one of the most exciting detective stories I was ever privileged to be a part of.  For those who’ve read my book, I can only hope that some of the thrill comes through of working in the previously unpublished materials in the Wilhelm Reich archives at Harvard’s Countway Library of Medicine, of looking through Reich’s own laboratory notebooks to reconstruct the daily details of how his bion experiments unfolded. 

I was equally honored and excited when Kevin Hinchey invited me to be interviewed as one of many professionals who have contributed our knowledge to the Wilhelm Reich Documentary Film Project.

Together, all participants in this project have worked diligently to make this film uniquely fact-based and accurate, up to date with the latest scholarship, including information and insights from Reich’s correspondence and laboratory notebooks, from interviews with people who worked in the laboratory with Reich in New York and at Orgonon, and from newly published works and works-in-progress by numerous scholars like myself.

As I look back over the first week of this last big push, this final crowdfunder to finish the film this year, I can only be impressed that people from 80 countries have viewed the trailer, and that 75 of those people have generously contributed. 

I’m very excited by the prospect—finally—of an accurate film about Reich and his science.  And I hope that you’re just as excited as I am so that you, too, will feel like jumping in now to help this film reach its completion. 

This is our final fundraiser and we must raise the remaining amount this time—in the next three weeks—for this film to be finished. 

Please join in to help us finish this incredibly exciting project.  Be a part of making history, of being one of the people who helped to produce the first factually-accurate film narrative about this pioneering psychiatrist, research physician and scientist.

Please make a donation today!   Thank you.
