Drastic Demise

  • Runtime: 5 min.
  • Genres: Avant-garde / Experimental
  • Director:Kenneth Anger


World War II ends, and [[Performer~P79721~Kenneth Anger~kennethanger]] goes wheeling with his camera into the crowd of a post-War party on Hollywood Boulevard. The short film ends with an atomic bomb going off. Although circulated on 16 mm through 1967, [[Performer~P79721~Anger~kennethanger]] then withdrew Drastic Demise. It is possible that the film no longer exists, but it may be among a few extant titles that [[Performer~P79721~Anger~kennethanger]] has stated he prefers not to show. ~ David Lewis, Rovi
