The theories of Austrian psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich about “orgone”, the psychedelic swoon, son of the use of psychotropic substances, echoes of dystopian science fiction: all this stirs the choppy waters of ORGONAUTI, EVVIVA!, in all probability the least-known work of Grifi’s entire filmography. Helped on the soundtrack by Alvin Curran and Mev (Musica elettronica viva), Grifi populates this experimental short with luminous brightly colored spots, prisms, kaleidoscopes, delirious voiceovers.
