- Viva Little Man
Wilhelm Reich was a physician and scientist whose investigation
of energy functions in human emotions led to the discovery
of an unknown energy which exists in all living matter and
in the cosmos. He called this energy "orgone."
Born in 1897 in the Austrian province of Galicia, Wilhelm
Reich, a student of Sigmund Freud, became one of the great
psychoanalytic pioneers before his clinical studies led him
into the laboratory and to investigations of the energy processes
In 1954, the Federal Food and Drug Administration obtained
an injunction which ordered Reich's literature to be banned
and destroyed, constituting one of the most heinous acts of
censorship in U.S. history. In an attempt to salvage some
of the forbidden items, Reich was convicted of contempt of
court and imprisoned in Lewisburg Penitentiary where he died
on November 3, 1957.
This program includes interviews with many of Dr. Wilhelm
Reichs former associates, friends, family members and scholars
who have personally investigated the facts surrounding his
life and work. Filmed and Directed by Digne Meller-Marcovitz.
