Kenneth Anger was a pioneering, agitational, visionary voice in independent, underground film, whose stunningly shot, magick-inspired movies disrupted experimental film and influenced the darker elements of counterculture and punk. A year to the day since Anger’s death, we pay homage to this cinematic magus and his contention that, ‘the day cinema was invented was a dark day for mankind’. Programme includes early cinema title When the Devil Drives (1907), Arena special Hollywood Babylon (1991), about Anger’s infamous book, and his psychodramas Fireworks (1947) and Rabbit’s Moon (1972).
