Exploding out of San Francisco’s vibrant late-60s counter-culture, Luminous Procuress is a psychedelic odyssey of unabashed hedonism. The only feature film by artist, mystic and polymath Steven Arnold, the film celebrates gender-fluidity and pan-sexuality in a voyeuristic phantasmagorical journey towards spiritual ecstasy.

Often compared to the works of Fellini, Jack Smith and Kenneth Anger, and featuring the outrageous talents of the avant garde drag troupe The Cockettes, as well as artist ruth weiss, Luminous Procuress was an underground sensation upon release but disappeared from circulation for many years. Now fully restored in all its sensuous glory, Luminous Procuress’ subversive delights are ready to be discovered anew.

Luminous Procuress is presented from a glorious new 2K restoration and makes its world premiere on Blu-ray.

Our edition also includes an exclusive new interview with producer Harry Tsvi Strauch, curator Steve Seid on the history and preservation of Luminous Procuress - plus a booklet featuring a new essay by film scholar Elena Gorfinkel and writing by Steve Seid.

Presented from the new 2K restoration of the fully uncut version of the film by the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA), and the Cinema Preservation Alliance.
