A ‘Magickal Mystery Detour’ through some of cinemas darker trappings. This evening will be a sulphurous sampling of both well known and rarely seen occult gems by such renowned illuminati as Maya Deren, Cane CapoVolto, Genesis P-Orridge and Kenneth Anger. Curatorially inspired by Lucifer Rising’s infernal legacy, these works explore the redemptive, hallucinatory, and deeply mischievous influence of the occult on pop culture. Divine pandrogyne, Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, PsychicTV, &lrquo;˜Thee Majesty’) will be on hand to talk about his work.
