The Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome


Here’s some occult art house mondo bizarro featuring Aanis Nin and Marjorie Cameron, dedicated to Aleister Crowley.

“The film is derived from one of Aleister Crowley’s dramatic rituals where people in the cult assume the identity of a god or a goddess. I wanted to create a feeling of being carried into a world of wonder, and the use of color and fantasy is progressive. In other words, it expands, it becomes completely subjective — like when people take communion and one sees it through their eyes. … Lord Shiva, the magician, awakes. The Scarlet Woman, whore of heaven, smokes a big, fat joint; Astarte of the moon brings the wings of snow; Pan bestows the grapes of Bacchus; Hecate offers the sacred mushroom, yagé, wormwood brew. The vintage of Hecate is poured. Pan’s cup is poisoned by Lord Shiva. The orgy ensues — a magick masquerade at which Pan is the prize. Lady Kali blesses the rites of the children of light as Lord Shiva invokes the godhead with the formula ‘Force and Fire’. Dedicated to the few; and to Aleister Crowley; and the crowned and conquering child.”
