The Film Is Finished: NYC Premiere

I’m pleased to announce the completion of the Wilhelm Reich Documentary Film Project.
This recently finished film is 107 minutes long and is entitled:

Love, Work and Knowledge – The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich

The title is derived from Reich’s guiding precept which appeared in print in his American
research journals and books, starting in 1942:

“Love, work and knowledge are the wellsprings of our life. They should also govern it.”

Two months from today—on the evening of January 13, 2018—a premiere screening of this film will take place at a 266-seat theater in New York City which we’ve rented for the occasion. In the next week or so, I’ll contact all crowdfunder backers who are eligible for the “perk” of two tickets to this event to find out who among them will be attending. Once I have a count of how many of these backers are coming and how many seats are still available, I’ll contact additional crowdfunding backers to see who else might want to attend.

We’re also exploring other screening possibilities early next year at universities and “art house” movie theaters in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts, as well as broadcast opportunities in the United States and Europe. And we’ve already compiled a list of prestigious film festivals in which the film will be submitted.
Thank you again for supporting this project over the past three years and making possible its production, post-production and completion. We’re excited by the film’s many future opportunities to present a compelling, factually accurate narrative of Reich’s life and work to newer and more mainstream audiences.

Please feel free to contact me at:

Warm regards,
Kevin Hinchey – Writer/Director
