My Fathers, My Mother and Me

Paul-Julien Robert

Paul-Julien Robert | Austria | 2012 | 93 min. | O.V. German subtitled in Spanish and English

In 1972, the Viennese painter and actionist Otto Muehl founded Friedrichshof, which would become the largest commune in Europe. There he carried out a social experiment of which Paul-Julien Robert is one of the results. Free love and rejection of the nuclear family made Friedrichshof the breeding ground for an extensive litter of children of uncertain fathers who were looked after by the collective, and for Muehl’s peculiar ideas which included constant performances in public by all the members and the initiation “at home” of adolescents into free sex. Through Friedrichshof’s very extensive archive and interviews with his mother and possible fathers, Robert gradually strips bare the internal workings of the commune, the dark shadows surrounding Muehl and the consequences, still hard to gauge, of such an unusual education.
