Kenneth Anger (born Kenneth Wilbur Anglemeyer; February 3, 1927) has directed 24 works since 1937, nine of which in particular have been grouped together as the “Magick Lantern Cycle”, and form the basis of Anger’s reputation as one of the most influential independent filmmakers in cinema history.

His films variously merge surrealism with eroticism and the occult, and have been described as containing “elements of erotica, documentary, psychodrama, and spectacle.”  Anger has focused upon occult themes in many his films, being fascinated by the notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley, and is a follower of Crowley’s religion, Thelema. This influence is evident from films like Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954), Invocation of My Demon Brother (1969) and Lucifer Rising (1972).
