Red Love | Chicago Reader

Red Love

West German filmmaker Rosa von Praunheim's ironically shaded analysis of sexual liberation vis-a-vis the women's movement and its deeply ambiguous impact on women's personal lives and patterns of social relating. The film intercuts documentary footage (a videotaped interview with an aging free-love lioness who walked away from family and marriage to join a commune) with a luridly operatic rendering of an early Soviet propaganda novel on the role of the new emancipated woman in postrevolutionary society. It's probably Praunheim's most critically acclaimed work, though perhaps not as accessible as some of his others (which aren't all that accessible to begin with). With Sacha Hammer, Mark Eins, and Helga Goetze; the camping-out interludes were filmed by noted New York undergrounder Mike Kuchar (1982).
