Love, Work and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich
Glenn Orkin and Kevin T. Hinchey (New York, New York)

Four days before the outbreak of World War II, Dr. Wilhelm Reich, a prominent Austrian psychiatrist and an outspoken anti-Nazi, arrived in New York to teach at the New School for Social Research. Yet, despite his university position, and his renown, four U.S. government agencies moved to censor Reich’s work. His books and research journals were banned by a Federal Court order in the 1950’s. Integrating primary materials, scholarly interviews, and eye-witness accounts, Love, Work, and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich, presents a narrative of Reich’s life and work, to explore the events that led up to this heinous example of censorship in America. 2018; 100 min.

With a Post-Screening Panel Discussion featuring: James Strick, Professor and Chair, Program in Science, Technology and Society, Franklin and Marshall College, and author of Wilhelm Reich, Biologist (Harvard University Press, 2015); Joseph Heckman, Professor of Soil Science, Rutgers University; and Tom DiFerdinando, an orgonomic researcher, and Independent Pain, Injury, Stress and Trauma Therapist.
