Since the release of Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising in 1963, rock music has been an important influence on many of the key avant-garde filmmakers of our age.

By marrying preexisting songs with radical experiments in imagery or narrative—and without subordinating the importance of either element—these artists of the moving image were able to travel far beyond traditional notions of the promotional music video. Tonight’s program includes images by Anger, Bruce Baillie, Thom Andersen, and Warren Sonbert, as well as music by Elvis Presley, Steve Reich, Led Zeppelin, and Rhys Chatham.
