SAN FRANCISCO: THE BRINGERS OF LIGHT / THE STRAIGHT THEATRE, 1967. POSTER FOR “THE EQUINOX OF THE GODS,” A CELEBRATION BY KENNETH ANGER COMMEMORATING THE AUTUMN EQUINOX AND A BENEFIT TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE COMPLETION OF ANGER’S “LUCIFER RISING” (EVENTUALLY RELEASED IN 1980). THE CELEBRATION WAS HELD AT THE STRAIGHT THEATRE ON HAIGHT ST., SAN FRANCISCO ON SEPTEMBER 21, 1967. IT FEATURED AN ALEISTER CROWLEY CEREMONY PERFORMED BY ANGER, WITH LIVE MUSIC BY BOBBY BEAUSOLEIL’S THE MAGICK POWERHOUSE OF OZ, AS WELL AS OTHER PERFORMANCES.
ANGER HAD A CAREER-LONG FASCINATION WITH THE MYSTIC AND MAGICAL, BUT “LUCIFER RISING” WAS THE FIRST OF HIS FILMS TO DIRECTLY ADDRESS SUCH THEMES. THE FILM WAS PARTIALLY SHOT IN EGYPT AND IS DOMINATED BY THE ICONOGRAPHY OF ANCIENT EGYPTIAN RELIGION. RA, THE SOLAR DEITY PORTRAYED ON THE POSTER, HIS HEADDRESS BEARING THE MARK OF THE BEAST, 666, IS AN IDEA ANGER WOULD PURSUE IN THE FILM.

THIS EDITION BEEN PRODUCED TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS TO BE FRAMED AND DISPLAYED AS ART. KENNETH ANGER HAS WORKED CLOSELY TOGETHER WITH THE PRINTER TO PRODUCE THIS HIGHLY-COLLECTIBLE PRINT.
