LOOKING BACK AT ANGER : A Retrospective Programme on Kenneth Anger’s Work

In the presence of Kenneth Anger 


10.11.2007 – 14.11.2007



The influence of Kenneth Anger, legendary pioneer of independent filmmaking, reaches well beyond the avant-garde movement and into the work of filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, R.W. Fassbinder, Derek Jarman and Sergei Paradjanov. In his films, Anger subverts conventional filmmaking, by sampling, mixing, recycling, re-editing or restaging the tenants of mainstream cinema and culture. This rare programme, preceded by an international seminar on Anger’s oeuvre, includes Kenneth Anger’s recent video work, Elio Gelmini’s documentary portrait of the filmmaker, as well as works by Stan Brakhage and Marie Menken where Anger is present, either physically or as a source of inspiration, and the Hollywood classic featuring child-actor Anger A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Looking Back at Anger will also present for the first time in Belgium the newly restored prints of Fireworks, Rabbit’s Moon, Scorpio Rising and Kustom Kar Kommandos, preserved by the UCLA Film Archive.
