Cinema Program free screening of "I Will Be Called Lucifer"

When: April 27, 2015 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm

58th Local Filmmakers’ Showcase
I Will Be Called Lucifer
Directed by Antony Buchanan (2015). Through an off-beat mixture of myth, biography, docu-fable, collage and fantasy, this film is an exploded narrative which converges the many lives of Lucifer with the now-mythic story of filmmaker Kenneth Anger’s troubled production Lucifer Rising. Featuring a cast of characters portrayed by their personal fantasies, (including Faust as Jimmy Page and a portrayal of Charles Manson by his big-screen hero Dennis Hopper), the stories of Anger’s doomed production are paralleled by stories of the archetypal scapegoat Azazel, as he crosses centuries and changes identities, inhabiting some of our most ostracized cultural figures. Robert Oppenheimer, the Femme Fatale, Dante’s Satan, Marilyn Monroe and others surface under Azazel in an experimental film which explores the consequences of seeking truth in archetypal narratives. (80 min.)
For mature audiences only.

The couple never marries, but through happenstance she ends up raising his daughter. Based on the novel by Olive Higgs Prouty. Soundtrack by Max Steiner. (118 min.)
