Occult Film I - Kenneth Anger's 'Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome' (1954)

Simply divine.  Its the predecessor to The Cremaster Cycle - video art long before we coined the term.  So decadent.  Somebody pinch me.  Anais Nin plays Astarte with the bird cage on her head and Kenneth features as Hecate.

It's Kenneth's dedication to Thelema - Crowley's religion, which he is a follower of, having also been involved with Ordo Templis Orientis (which I mention in the post about Baphomet).

You will find Kenneth featured in the video on Boleskine House.
