Kenneth Anger in Long Island
This posted on behalf of Iskandar...
It appears that there is an exhibition of Kenneth Anger's work at Contemporary Art Centre in Long Island, running from February 22nd to September 14th 2009. I wonder if anyone can supply a bit more information about the event?

No idea about that, but just saw this listed........ http://www.amazon.co.uk/Magick-Lantern-Cycle-DVD/dp/B001TQROAI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1237163903&sr=1-4
Well spotted - thanks for that...
"Rabbits Moon" is a particular favourite of mine. The music track - "It Came In The Night" by "A Raincoat" - is awesome!

The song by "A Raincoat" - which I also think is great - is in the 1979, shorter (7 min.) version of the "Rabbit's Moon." It featured on the VHS collection of Anger's work released by Mystic Fire Video (IIRC). The two volume DVD collection of "The Films of Kenneth Anger" contains both this and the original 1950 longer (16 minutes) version of this film, with music by "The Flamingos, The Dells, The Capris, Mary Wells [and] The El Dorados" - but not the song by "A Raincoat." I prefer the shorter version, maybe because I saw it first, but also because it is tighter and more together (and because it includes that great song also). I couldn't figure which version(s) is included in this 3-disc British edition, and I also wonder if it will contain some of his recent films (such as those shown recently at the "Tate."
Doubtful, as they aren't part of the "Magick Lantern Cycle." That's a definite and finite collection of his work from his early and middle years. Frankly, most people have never had the opportunity to see any of his other films.
