New Documentary Film on Wilhelm Reich In the Works

Jewish psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) wrote passionately against the practice of infant circumcision calling it "one of the worst treatments of children." Now there is a new documentary film in the works about Reich's life—and an active Kickstarter campaign to help fund what promises to be a very important project.

Kevin Hinchey, who is a co-director of the Wilhelm Reich Infant Trust Fund in Rangely Maine, will write and direct the film. He says it will set the record straight about Reich's life and legacy, using the best available historical materials.

Beyond the Bris hopes this important project gets the funding it needs—and that perhaps Reich's views on the harmfulness of circumcision will be mentioned in the documentary. Today parents from all walks are questioning the practice that Reich so abhorred. Perhaps the circumcision issue will spark a renewed interest in Reich among today's young parents and parents-to-be.

  1. This is extremely important. I don't think that people realize how the American medical industrial complex, and the mainstream "scientific" establishment, not to mention other huge trade associations such as the NFL, suppress information and vilify people who challenge them. There is a new book out (by Ralph W. Moss), called "Doctored Results" about the suppression of Laetrile at Sloan-Kettering, and a related film called "Second Opinion." Rebecca, perhaps you can add a link to the Kickstarter campaign for this film.
