This is a trailer for a film night event being held in Los Angeles, CA organized in part by Jacqueline Elaine Gomez, a frequent contributor to the Hermetic Library visual pool, and the person behind The Church of Anthrax and the Tree Altars project.
“MISS M.E. & Jacqueline Elaine Gomez are pleased to have guest curator Astral Eyes present a night of psychedelic sights and sounds.
Astral Eyes has dug up from the depths ov his insane collection, the very rarely seen 1973 Japanese animated feature film, Kanashimi no Belladonna or Belladonna of Sadness.
Directed and co-written by Eiichi Yamamoto inspired by Jules Michelet’s non-fiction book Satanism and Witchcraft, first published in 1862.
A hand painted water color psychedelic explosion!
Its the story of Jeanne, a peasant woman who is raped which leads to her being accused of witchcraft.
This film contains some of the most graphic and suggestively erotic, violent and beautiful psychedelic imagery ever seen.
As if that is not enough, we are pleased to have a special performance by Mira Billotte, WHITE MAGIC. Who will be performing an enchanting set just for this screening.
To keep the night charmed there will be sonic serenades
