GARY PARSONS: MAN, MYTH & MAGIC

Described by Kenneth Anger as The heterosexual me Gary Parsons is an MA film graduate from Goldsmiths College London who specialises in short films. Utilizing both, elements of the surrealist genre and images of the occult, these films are both beautiful and at times disturbing. They also tap into the verisimilitude of the erotic and the unconventional.

Parsons has been influenced by film-makers such as Jan Svankmajer, Kenneth Anger, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Luis Bunuel, Hans Richter, Man Ray and Jean Rollin. All these elements meet within a melting pot to find visual references within the work.

The films can be viewed in many different ways, as straight forward narrative pieces but also as ritual film as demonstrated by similar film-makers such as Maya Derren or even as music promo video. The films stand as an ongoing obsession of their maker as an overall understanding of the human psyche within certain specific landscapes. Parsons has recently had two sold out talks on British Witchcraft Documentaries of the 1970s in London. RUNNING ORDER:

CONJURATION DIRECTOR: GARY PARSONS R/T 10 mins, UK 2016 CONJURATION is a film about modern magic tapping in to the energies of its ancient past. Filmed in Pompeii, Avebury, Glastonbury, London and Oslo, it also shows an Alexandrian ritual.

Live conversation between BILLY CHAINSAW & GARY PARSONS discussing the director's work and influences + audience Q & A

Parson's chooses a personal favorite from his extensive archive of occult cinema:

ANGELI BIANCHI ANGELI NERI Dir: Luigi Scattini R/T 82 mins, Italy, 1970

ANGELI BIANCHI ANGELI NERI is the rarely screened, original European version of Italian director Luigi Scattini's mondo style documentary on occult rituals from around the world that's most readily known by its US release title WITCHCRAFT '70 and features different footage from the US release.

Tony Conrad: Completely In The Present

DOORS 7PM

Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present is a non-fiction film examining the pioneering life and works of artist, musician, and educator, Tony Conrad. Tony Conrad was one the great American artists of our time, yet to the world at large he remains criminally under appreciated. Since the early 1960s, Conrad's films and compositions have been the stuff of legend for artists and musicians everywhere. His vast, inter-disciplinary repertoire has single-handedly created and influenced major film and compositional movements. He performed in and recorded the soundtrack to Jack Smith's legendary Flaming Creatures; he turned the paradigms of cinema upside down with The Flicker, a film composed of only black and white frames; his development and practice of Just Intonation and Minimalism through his work with Stockhausen and La Monte Young still has the music establishment scratching their heads; his pivotal role in the formation of The Velvet Underground has directly or indirectly influenced everyone who has picked up a guitar since; as an early adopter of activist public access television he democratized the emerging medium of portable video. In his later years he continued to perform and make work that pushed the boundaries of reason for which he has finally begun to receive worldwide attention.

Utilizing intimate footage of Conrad and his collaborators shot by the director over the last twenty-two years, as well as Tony's own archive of recordings and films, Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present mirrors Conrad's own playfully radical approach to art making. The non-linear structure allows Conrad to wildly free associate his streams of consciousness, revealing an honest and humane way of navigating a remarkable, creative life.

Chronicling Conrad's life, work and pervasive influence over the years and through multiple mediums, this highly anticipated film is on tour of some the world's most esteemed museums, galleries and film festivals - the Viennale, Rotterdam International Film Festival, Big Sky Film Festival, The Tate Modern, Washington DC's National Gallery of Art, Brighton CineCity Film Festival, HOME Manchester, CCA Glasgow, among more than 50 others.

Directed by Tyler Hubby Produced by Christine Beebe and Paul Williams Production Co: Burning Bridges Starring: Tony Conrad, Tony Oursler, Jim O'Rourke, David Grubbs, Marie Losier, John Cale, Moby, Branden Joseph, Jeff Hunt, Charlemagne Palestine, Jay Sanders, Jennifer Walshe
