Kenneth Anger

Catalogue Number
Release Date
November 8, 2011

A counterculture icon with a career spanning over 60 years - Kenneth Anger, arguably, was the pioneer of the pop video concept with his infamous short film, Scorpio Rising, from 1963. A career constantly in the shadow of controversy (indirect relationships with the Manson Family, interests in the occult and a sympathizer of Aleister Crowleys Thelema philosophy), Anger's gritty, technicolor, violent, homo-erotic images (too strong for the America of the time) are those of one of the true innovators of the American underground film movement.

From Anger's bohemian existence in 1940 / 50's Paris, to the psychedelic, late 60's in London and his hometown of Hollywood (made infamous by his Hollywood Babylon books); Alice L. Hutchinson's book focuses on his creativity from his first film 'Fireworks' (1947) to recent projects that have not been discussed in detail until now. Consolidating English and French texts as well as interviews with by Anger and commentaries from the likes of Anais Nin, Jonas Mekas and more.
