  • It Can Be Done! - 1950s style melodrama on Wilhelm Reich
  • "Writer/Director Jon East Describes It Can Be Done as:
    "A fictional interpretation of true events. The film dramatises an apocalyptic episode from the remarkable life of maverick scientist and sexual revolutionary Dr. Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957). Set in the USA in 1956 the film corrects some of the widespread misunderstandings that continue to surround this most unusual man. Although events have been conflated, it is a truthful if poetic account: not only of Reichs breadth of outlook but also of the sinister forces that connived to destroy him. Visually I wanted to achieve a transparent directorial style that didnt compete with the actors performances for the audiences attention. Rather I aimed to create an epic feel that would both subtly reflect the beauty of Reichs holistic scientific vision and the enormity of the crime visited against it.""
