Probing into the deep psyche of music, fame and film this evening poses two exceptional in-person artist’s forays and genius spins on the infinite iterations of Rock & Roll. Jess Holzworth is a visual artist & video maker who employs her hyper-collage aesthetic to the making of stunning music videos for bands including Beck, Black Bananas, M.I.A., and Deep Valley. These and more of Holzworth’s videos will be screened tonight. Next, join meticulous historian Clif Taylor/Chick Cashman, dragged through the ashes of glam hell, in live discussion on the essence of rock and roll- a cosmological montage and performance manifesto, preaching + playing cosmic cowboy bullshit all while weaving a web between Cassavetes’ Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Bewitched and high heels ad infinitum!
I Will Be Called Lucifer (Filmmaker, Anthony Buchanan in person!!)
Through a searing mixture of myth, biography, docu-fable, collage and fantasy, Anthony Buchanan’s essay film is an homage to Kenneth Anger, to creative rebels and to the great poets of Hollywood. It’s a love letter from a younger filmmaker to a mentor converging the many lives of Lucifer with the story of filmmaker Kenneth Anger’s troubled production of LUCIFER RISING. Robert Oppenheimer, JFK, Charles Manson, Dennis Hopper, Marilyn Monroe, Bobby Beausoleil and others surface in an experimental film which explores the consequences of seeking truth in archetypal narratives.
