33 Bath Street, CV31 3AF Leamington Spa, Warwickshire
On Wednesday the 20th of March we will host a talk and screening by Gary Parsons on the various visual representations of Aleister Crowley and Thelema within film.

The talk follows in chronological order a look at films where Crowley was used as a character to avant-garde films showing various aspects of Thelema. It looks at the work of film makers such as Kenneth Anger and Crowley’s influence on him as well as more mainstream depictions such as Hammer’s ‘The Devil Rides Out’, also including some lesser known European art house films. It will show just how important Crowley’s legacy has been on cinema over the years.

Gary Parsons is a film maker and a graduate in film from Goldsmiths College London. His previous talk ‘Witchcraft Documentaries of the 1970’s’ sold out in each venue it was performed and he was interviewed for both Dazed and Hero magazines about the subject.

This talk will also include a screening of Gary's film Thelema (2008) as well as Kenneth Anger's 'Lucifer Rising' (1981)
