It led to Fascism and Doomsday!” At first viewing, it could appear that Milena is championing sexual liberation. “Kill for Peace” by The Fugs kicks in on the soundtrack, a comparably oxymoronic program. “But who will protect me from you?” Milena’s housemate responds. But you couldn’t bear the “Revolution” touching you! Even after this debate, the Commission for Cinematography allowed the film, but the public prosecutor banned it the following month. The screening was interrupted by both applause and booing; the atmosphere was electric during the subsequent discussion. The fictional sequence forms the backbone of WR’s unconventional plot, dividing the film into two “Sex-Pol” shorts. Is the solution a greater nationalism—Yugoslavian rather than Serbian and Croatian, for example—or to abolish all forms of nationalism once and for all? That led to revolution. Should we attribute Yugoslavia’s collapse to an excess of id or a surfeit of superego? I agree with that. Those are the lenses you really rely on and keep going back to. Milena’s indictment of Vladimir Ilich is Reich’s indictment of Lenin and Hitler and Stalin; it is Makavejev’s indictment of Tito and of all patriarchal power and personality structure. CrimethInc. Morais joined the Reds at the beginning of the 2018/19 season following his release from Bolton Wanderers that summer. Makavejev has Vladimir Ilich sing “François Villon’s Prayer” by Russian singer Bulat Okudzhava, whose recordings were suppressed in Russia at the time: Before the earth stops turning Stalin’s “first stage of communism” is the reduction of life to inorganic matter—the substitution of duplicate for original, of ideology for experience, of program for desire, of permanence for presence, of power for pleasure, of nation for people. Milena attempting to explain to Vladimir Ilich how patriarchal power and personality structure figure in the emergence of fascism. “Speaking truth to power” is a time-honored liberal strategy—and if it generally fails, it is not only because power is unimpressed by truth, but also because the speaker is usually not aware of the footholds the attraction to power has already established within her. “The October Revolution was ruined when it rejected free love!” (The camera cuts to her housemate Jagoda, who gasps “War of liberation!” as she tries—playfully?—to escape her male lover.) With the aperture set to F1.0, the weather resisitant XF50mmF1.0 R WR can capture light shimmering in the dark, and creates enchanting images that justify you getting wet. He is nationalistic manhood personified; the stage makeup of his profession only accentuates his icy masculinity. A protégé of Sigmund Freud, Reich had founded the German Association for Proletarian Sexual Politics (Sex-Pol) to promote sexual liberation; in books like The Mass Psychology of Fascism, he sought to identify the role of psychological factors in the rise of authoritarianism. Clad in a mini-dress and an army jacket, Milena builds to her climax. Makavejev puts his own anarchistic ideas in the mouth of a communist caricature of an anarchist in order to save the authorities the trouble of having to caricature him themselves—a comic lampoon of a timeless socialist tactic. Shocked at his own aggression, Vladimir Ilich entreats Milena to forgive him. WR: Mysteries of the Organism: Anarchist Realism and Critical Quandaries, ‹ Previous: Ein Jahr seit der türkischen Invasion in Rojava: Interview mit Tekoşîna Anarşîst, Chile: Looking Back on a Year of Uprising: Next ›. Me too?” interrupts Milena’s housemate, having stripped naked. But can you really die of too much fresh air? While Godrey massages Buckley to erection, we see Milena reading aloud from Lenin’s The State and Revolution, in which Lenin quotes Engels: “The proletariat needs the state, not in the interests of freedom, but in order to subdue its enemies, and as soon as it becomes possible to speak of freedom, the state as such ceases to exist.”. Crawley Town Football Club can today confirm that Portuguese midfielder Filipe Morais has agreed to mutually terminate his contract with the club after two years of service. Utterly bereft, he is staggering through the snow, his hands soaked in blood, recoiling in horror from himself. In view of his tribulations on both sides of the divide, we can see that the repression Makavejev exposed and experienced was not confined to a single national context, but characterizes every nation under capitalism and communism alike. In place of spontaneous expressions of love for humanity, merciless violence. When over-controlled people relieve their irrationalities, they often become chaotic, narcissistic, murderous, or suicidal because they just can’t stop. Finally, they kiss, and, as the soundtrack swells with plaintive violins, Vladimir Ilich soliloquizes about Beethoven: Nothing is lovelier than the Appassionata. That in heaven he’s alive again…. Crawley Town Football Club can today confirm that Portuguese midfielder Filipe Morais has agreed to mutually terminate his contract with the club after two years of service. At F2, the vignetting completely disappears and the circle bokeh is perfectly shaped. Wilhelm Reich and his family in exile in Maine. Makavejev set out to test the limits of Yugoslavian permissiveness. As the ultimate homo politicus, Lenin feared eruptions of strong feeling. For example, following a portrait of the conservative townspeople in the part of Maine where Reich settled, Makavejev cuts back to the streets of New York City, presenting Andy Warhol starlet Jackie Curtis promenading through the bright lights of the business district with her boyfriend. Hit them on the head mercilessly, though in principle we oppose all violence! Free from vignetting and the ability to control aberrations, creates precision with extremely creamy bokeh. Enhances photographer’s performance to the next level. The glow of lights reflecting on the wet pavements, transforms itself into beautiful bokeh and adds colour in the darkness. In fact, she is laying out a prescription for repressive desublimation as a vaccine against revolution. The dismembered corpse of Yugoslavia in 2018. The movie concludes with two powerful gestures of affirmation and forgiveness. Rather than advertising anarchism as one more product in the supermarket of ideology, it demonstrates a method that undermines all ideologies, all received wisdom. By using the advantages of the mirrorless system, the lens utilizes the high precision using the auto focus of the camera, including face and eye autofocus and phase detection pixels. If you agree, let’s do something about it. Beginning with Marxism and the (puritanical, repressive) Soviet Union on one side and capitalism and Western (commodified, exploitative) sexual liberation on the other, Makavejev takes the teachings of Wilhelm Reich as the basis for an imagined Yugoslavia representing a communist model for sexual liberation.3 Then he mounts a critique of sexual liberation as ideology, portraying an alternative communism in which sexual liberation could be as repressively realized as workers’ liberation was under Tito. “There is nothing in this human world of ours that is not in some way right, however distorted it may be.”. What we need is a free youth in a crime-free world!”. Speaking to an interviewer in 1995, Makavejev attributed the banning of WR to the continuing influence of the Soviet Union in Yugoslavia. In the most famous scene of WR, Milena steps out onto the balcony of her apartment to harangue her neighbors in a sequence that channels the greatest Soviet propaganda films. Those who seek patriarchal status and political power willingly make this exchange, not understanding that these supplant rather than supplement their personhood.

Deprive them of free love and they’ll seize everything else! ↩, For a chilling example of how “non-statist micro-politics” of affective subversion can be reappropriated for the project of repression in the same way that revolutionary communism became the state religion of totalitarian nations, consult Eyal Weizman’s “Walking Through Walls,” in which he relates how the Israeli Defense Force employed concepts from A Thousand Plateaus by Deleuze and Guattari to strategize assaults on Palestinian refugee camps. In this way, he undermines and transforms the binaries that were essential to both Yugoslavian cinema and Cold War politics. Now you have to hit them on the head. Hounded out of the Communist Party by pro-Soviet puritans and driven from Europe by the Nazi seizure of power, Reich fled to the United States. They know not what they do… With perhaps naïve pride, I think, “What wonders men can create!” But I can’t listen to music. The magic of the XF50mmF1.0 R WR is not limited when used fully open at F1.0. This is Milena speaking for Wilhelm Reich, but it is also Makavejev speaking—and through him, it is Yugoslavia speaking, and the entire 20th century. Interrupting the conversation about Reich, Radmilović cheerfully hustles Vladimir Ilich into a wardrobe and commences nailing it shut. The uprising soon spreads across the Italian Peninsula involving thousand of slaves. At the opening of the movie, Kupferberg4 intones, “He who chooses slavery—is he a slave still?”, Milena takes Vladimir Ilich back to her apartment to introduce the haughty Russian to the ideas of her mentor, Wilhelm Reich. Yet he never fled from his passions. Returning home, he filled out the material with clips from Soviet propaganda films like The Vow and shot a fictional sequence of his own. From the perspective of the tactician, all sentiment should be strategic, all raw energy should be channeled into rationalized systems. What is this love that makes you nearly knock my head off? Some have tried to defend it here, saying that the struggle against every dogmatism shouldn’t accept any dogma. Of all the works of the Black Wave, Dušan Makavejev’s WR: Mysteries of the Organism stands out as an exemplary anarchist film. A gift of remorse to Caine This is the spirit in which we turn our thoughts to Makavejev’s WR: Mysteries of the Organism. Fujifilm unveils the latest interchangeable lenses roadmap for the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras, Free firmware update for FUJINON XF50mmF1.0 R WR Lens, Heralding a new age of portrait photography FUJINON XF50mmF1.0 R WR Lens. Stalin, glamorized in a Soviet propaganda film, strides out to the tune of a zither: “We have demonstrated our ability not only to destroy the old order, but to build in its place a new socialist order.”. After the Second World War, the Yugoslavian state poured millions into partisan blockbusters like Battle of Neretva and other sexless paeans to patriotic self-sacrifice. In giving remorse to Caine, Makavejev implores us to compassion—not just for Milena, Reich, himself, and all who have suffered at the hands of authoritarians, but also for Lenin, for Stalin, for Tito and Eisenhower, for all of humanity locked in cycles in which we do harm to those we love. Most political figures spoke against WR. But also, remember me…, Oh Lord, thou art all-knowing He is like a physician trying to diagnose the ailments afflicting the patient and the medical profession at once; this is why the film can appear so self-contradictory. The balcony scene—arguably, one of the high points of world cinema. “Excuse me,” Vladimir Ilich interjects at one point, “this is a photo montage, isn’t it?”.

When she approaches him backstage for an autograph, he recites his answers directly out of a Communist Party phrasebook. When we first encounter him, he is barricading a road; he accuses a BMW driver of being a member of the red bourgeoisie. It still challenges us today. Milena smoking a cigar like Sigmund Freud or Che Guevara. In the contrast between these two Russian revolutionaries, we see two fundamentally different ways of relating to the tides of emotion that surge through us. I believe in Thy wisdom then We see Milena’s disembodied head on an autopsy tray. This is throwing mud on all of those holy things…” Still another said that if Petar Volk showed up among his workers with his long hair, they would throw him out head first. As the fallen soldier believes There is nothing in this human world of ours that is not in some way right, however distorted it may be. Yet the capitalist West was ultimately no more supportive of his iconoclastic filmmaking. Yet his ultimate motives are compassionate and affirmative. Everyone at the club would like to thank Filipe for his services to the team and wish him all the best for the future. Exploring the variants of Marxism, he found a road not taken in the works of the Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich. The first 25 minutes is ostensibly a documentary about Wilhelm Reich and his legacy in the US, captioned “May 1, 1931, Berlin”—when Reich’s original Sex-Pol might have made this film, in the alternate universe Makavejev concocts. Shortly before the final uprising of the revolutions of 1848-49, Bakunin went to hear his favorite composition, the 9th Symphony, performed in Dresden; afterwards, he was accused of burning down the opera house in which it had been performed. Give me some.“. Another: “I think this is a real political diversion and an attack on things we consider holy, such as Lenin, such as a communist red flag, our movement, our efforts and the victims we sacrificed and still sacrifice for that. The images you can achieve change their expression every 1/3 step. One said, “The film placed all of the ideologies of the world in the same hole, including the ideology of self-management. Every nation will be a time bomb like Yugoslavia until we disassemble all of them down to their deepest foundations, which are rooted deep within ourselves. “His name is World Revolution,” she explains, giving us another way to decode the title of the film. In summer 1971, political figures and “cultural workers” attended a special screening of WR in Novi Sad in order to decide whether to ban it. The same seeds of fascism and civil war lurk within all nationalisms, within all valorizations of power and duty. Was the problem too much freedom on the scale of the nation—or too much despotism on the molecular level, the scale of the individual? Using lenses at F1.0 with such precision requires users to have some patience. XF50mmF1 allowed me to use faster shutter speed and lower ISO even under low light, guaranteeing better image quality. “Socialism must not exclude human pleasure from its program!” she declaims to proletarian applause, a demagogue of sexual freedom. Milena is mortified: “Free the People’s Artist!”. In other words, repressive desublimination. “Comrades, we have successfully completed the first stage of communism!” Stalin proclaims, joining everyone in applauding his own declaration. “He teaches that every nice person like you and me hides behind his façade a great explosive charge… A great reservoir of energy that can be released only by war or revolution.”, “In me? The ban was lifted only in 1986. In the plaster casting scene, Makavejev is depicting the reduction of living sexuality to a commodity, an inert representation. Grant what is needful to him…, To the one whose hand is open The scene ends like a classic partisan film, with everyone singing a Yugoslavian folk song together—and suddenly, the film cuts to a rally in Beijing at which tens of thousands of people are raising Mao’s little red book in the air in unison. A third issue on the topic of nationalism is currently in preparation. “Men [sic] fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and when it comes turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name.” -William Morris, A Dream of John Ball, Jennifer Lynde Barker, The Aesthetics of Antifascist Film: Radical Projection, Marc James Léger, “WR: Mysteries of the Organism Today”, Lorraine Mortimer, Terror and Joy: The Films of Dušan Makavejev, Richard Porton, “WR: Mysteries of the Organism: Anarchist Realism and Critical Quandaries”, Compounding the (faux) documentary aesthetic of WR, all the main characters with the exception of the Russian, Vladimir Ilich, are named for the actors who play them. The critic Petar Volk defended the freedom to criticize, insisting that Makavejev shouldn’t be seen as “a typical anarchist, nor a typical artist, anti-artist, communist, anticommunist.” He insisted that every work of art is political, but that even when art criticizes, it shouldn’t be seen as hostile. It is not safe to sleep with patriarchy. Jamie Stoker (UK) X-T4 50mm | F1.0 | 1/125 | ISO640 XF50mmF1.0 R WR. How we answer these questions will determine how we respond to nationalist violence in the 21st century: whether we understand it as an excess interrupting the present order or as the purest manifestation of that order. We believe that you should be free to dispose of your limitless potential on your own terms: that no government, market, or ideology should be able to dictate what your life can be. Morais joined the Reds at the beginning of the 2018/1 Makavejev’s methodology and compassion give us a point of departure. ↩, July 4 in Minneapolis: The Logic of Autonomous Organizing, A Mural in Memory of Those Killed by Police and White Supremacy, Posters, Stickers, and Graffiti from around the World. Radmilović, the representative of chaos and irrationality, does no harm to anyone, and almost succeeds in quarantining Vladimir Ilich. Speaking about WR years later, Makavejev reflected: You can die from freedom, like you can die from too much fresh air, if you are not used to it… I think that over-controlled people have very good reasons for saying that freedom is dangerous. As the camera zooms in past the forensic investigators, her head comes to life and addresses us, describing the outcome of her liaison with Vladimir Ilich, “a genuine Red Fascist.”, “Comrades!” she proclaims, indomitable even in death. Briefly, we glimpse Milena releasing Vladimir Ilich from the wardrobe. The film cuts to a scene in which an inmate in a mental hospital is undergoing electric shock therapy, and the zither resumes, driving home the association between patriarchal leadership, state power, and the institutional enforcement of mental health. There are lenses that have the special unexplained quality where they just make things look beautiful and sometimes better than real life. The film cuts to a man in a straitjacket slamming his head against a wall over and over to the sound of another communist hymn: “We thank the Party—our glorious Party—for bringing happiness to every home.”. Antipolitika is also printed in Serbo-Croatian and Greek. Just as no dictatorship can create the conditions for the liberation of humanity, in the final analysis there is no such thing as an anti-fascist state. We strive to reinvent our lives and our world according to the principles of self-determination and mutual aid. Fascism and anti-fascism, Stalinism and anti-Stalinism do not go together…”. Marvelous, superhuman music! And remember, I’m here too. We see her reading Reichian propaganda, smoking a cigar à la Sigmund Freud, and sitting in her orgone accumulator while her housemate, Jagoda, makes love. Free from vignetting and the ability to control aberrations, creates precision with extremely creamy bokeh. The future is in chains within you — set it free. Or is control the problem, which we can only undermine from the bottom up by means of autonomous subversion and transgression? Today, in the Trump era, as in the mid-20th century, authoritarianism is not an aberration, but a norm grounded in a deeply repressive and hierarchical society. Did the nationalist wars that tore up the country represent unfettered desire giving rise to violence, or were they caused by the forces that have always distorted and repressed desire? The argument thus formulated, WR speeds towards its catastrophic conclusion. ↩, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony also figures prominently in Makavejev’s films Man Is Not a Bird and Sweet Movie. What seems like a celebration of manhood and male power is actually a substitution tantamount to castration: the inorganic for the organic, the artificial for the real, the rigid for the flexible, the statue of the hero for the flesh of the human being. Yukio Uchida (Japan) X-Pro3 50mm | F1.0 | 1/900 | ISO800 XF50mmF1.0 R WR, Yukio Uchida (Japan) X-Pro3 50mm | F2.0 | 1/210 | ISO800 XF50mmF1.0 R WR. Some 800 people attended. Auto focus on this F1.0 lens is effortless and the weather resistance removes any concerns that elements can cause. Filipe made 43 appearances for the Reds and scored on eight occasions. He died in prison, having spent the final years of his life as a crank promoting orgone accumulators, cloudbusters, and other pseudoscientific inventions, convinced he was still the target of “red fascist” persecution as the Food and Drug Administration burned his books. It gets on my nerves! But nowadays, if you stroke anybody’s head, he’ll bite your hand off! In Paris, he lived with a pianist so as to hear Beethoven every day. Like our predecessors, we have to combat it on every level, using a wide range of strategies and tools—from street tactics to pedagogy, philosophy, and cinema. As Godfrey packs plaster around Buckley’s erection, the soundtrack shifts to Czech classical composer Bedřich Smetana’s patriotic theme, “The Moldau.” Smetana’s composition connects naturalism and nationalism, evoking the reverence with which male sexual potency is venerated in patriarchal society. “And remember, I’m here too,” entreats Vladimir Ilich, begging for an impossible absolution at the end of a century of holocausts. Just like how the latest technologies used for the track shoes assist athletes to break the world records, I believe that this lens has the similar capability and potential to enhance photographer's performance to the next level. Makavejev’s trialectics: Milena, protagonist of WR, both dead and alive, and director Dušan Makavejev himself. This is the problem—how order succeeds order, the dictator replacing the Tsar just as Oedipus replaced his father. Even without patience you can have full control with this highly advanced lens. On Lenin’s side, we see control, austerity, order, violence. Over this scene, Makavejev dubs a radio commercial: “You own the sun with Coppertone.” The US is at once a bastion of small-town conservatism and a land of freedom in which sexual difference manifests as the commodification of the self on the market of identity. Like the Dadaists before him, Makavejev presents his critique via collage: montage is his answer to dialectics. Milena’s attraction to Vladimir Ilich underscores the point that our current desires will not necessarily lead us out of the order that produces them. The angle of view equivalent to 76mm in 35mm format and when combined with the outstanding image quality, it allows you to frame the world in a different way. At this moment, to the sound of a madcap Balkan horn line, Milena’s ex-lover, the lumpen-proletarian Radmilović, comes smashing through the wall like a cartoon superhero out of Deleuze and Guattari.5 Radmilović functions as a sort of Shakespearean fool: because he is a sexist, drunken lout, he can say and do things that would otherwise be inadmissible in Yugoslavian film. It’s also one of the fiercest expressions of disillusionment with state socialism to reach us from the 20th century. The film was banned in Yugoslavia for a decade and a half.2 Makavejev himself was driven into exile in the West following a complaint brought against him by veteran partisans. Like Milena, Yugoslavia was murdered, torn apart by authoritarian currents that had never been rooted out by the sham self-management of state socialism.
