Kenneth Anger

Fireworks

Continuing after our festival break with Kenneth Anger’s FIREWORKS from 1947, screened in Oberhausen in 1959, is a milestone of gay cinema. This dream-like, experimental short which is “widely regarded as the first gay narrative film ever made in the U.S.” (Matthew Hays) stars the director himself as the main character. The film contains strong homoerotic imagery, coupled with elements of surrealism and horror.
