HOMOCCULT & OTHER ESOTEROTICA - VOLUME 1 & 2


FILM SCREENINGS
  • HOMOCCULT & OTHER ESOTEROTICA - VOLUME 1 & 2 - a group of short experimental queer films focused on magick & the occult - curated by Daniel McKernan - will be screened in Chicago at S&S PROJECT over the weekend of April 6-8, 2012.
    • Curatorial enfant terrible Daniel McKernan brings the magickal, sexually transgressive short films he screened at last year's MIX NYC festival to the West Coast. Many of the films capture the spirit of arch-gay cinematic spell-casters Kenneth Anger and Derek Jarman, especially those made by the program's more (in)famous participants, such as Throbbing Gristle alumni Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson. The younger contributors, such as Black Sun Productions, are clearly influenced by P-Orridge and Christopherson's bold career choices; their homages make the films crackle with cross-generational currents of erotic, creative energy. -- Flavorpill
