About The Event
This illustrated lecture traces the appearance of the infamous magus Aleister Crowley in cinema, as both a character and an influence. Gary Parsons follows him from earliest flickering portrayals, through the Hammer horror era, and right up to the avant-garde. Along the way we meet Kenneth Anger, The Devil Rides Out, and European art house films. We promise an enlivening evening with the Great Beast, celluloid-style. Gary Parsons is a film maker and a film graduate from Goldsmiths College London. He has been interviewed for both Dazed and Hero magazines. He has spoken on ‘Witchcraft Documentaries of the 1970s;' we are delighted to welcome him back to Treadwell's.
