About Kenneth Anger
Kenneth Anger is a filmmaker whose work has been described as "surreal, erotic, and occult." Born in Santa Monica, California in 1927, Anger began making films as a teenager and quickly gained a reputation as an avant-garde artist. His early works, such as "Fireworks" (1947) and "Eaux d'Artifice" (1953), explored themes of homoeroticism and the occult.
In the 1960s, Anger became associated with the counterculture movement and began making films that were more explicitly political. His most famous work from this period is "Scorpio Rising" (1963), a film that juxtaposes images of biker culture with Nazi imagery to comment on the violence and nihilism of American society.
Throughout his career, Anger has been a controversial figure, both for his subject matter and his personal life. He has been open about his homosexuality and his interest in the occult, and has been involved in several high-profile legal battles over his work.
Despite these controversies, Anger's influence on the world of cinema has been profound. His innovative use of music, color, and editing techniques has inspired generations of filmmakers, from Martin Scorsese to David Lynch.
