Renowned as the author of the scandalous bestselling book Hollywood Babylon, Kenneth Anger is a legend in this own time. The mythology that has grown around him has many sources, from his involvement with the occult, astrology and the pop world of Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull and Jimmy Page, to the announcement of his own death in the pages of the Village Voice, and the destruction, loss and banning of his films.

At the heart of all this mythology was a filmmaker of prodigious talent, whose skill and imagination created films of great visual force, influencing filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, David Lynch and Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

The films:

  • Fireworks (1947)
  • Puce Moment (1949)
  • Rabbit's Moon (1950/1971, the rarely seen 16mins version)
  • Eaux d'Artifice (1953)
  • Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954)
  • Scorpio Rising (1964)
  • Kustom Kar Kommandos (1965)

  • Lucifer Rising (1981)
