Few artists today have achieved the legendary status, notorious celebrity and sublime mastery of Kenneth Anger’s cinema. He is one of the greatest filmmakers to emerge from the postwar American experimental film movement. Exploring themes of ritualistic transformation and transfiguration, his films are imbued with a baroque splendor stemming from the heightened sensuality of opulent colors and imagery. With references to pop icons, Anger lyrically depicts youth counterculture centered on the erotics and occult subjects. His widely diverse oeuvre includes Fireworks (1947), Scorpio Rising (1963), Invocation of my Demon Brother (1969) and Lucifer Rising (1970-81). Very experimental – almost exclusively without dialogue and rarely more than 30 minutes in length – Anger’s iconic works have had a significant influence on directors like David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, and Stan Brakhage.
