Kenneth Anger (born Kenneth Wilbur Anglemyer February 3, 1927) is an American underground experimental filmmaker, actor and author. Working exclusively in short films, he has produced almost forty works since 1937, nine of which have been grouped together as the "Magick Lantern Cycle".
Lucifer Rising is a short film by director Kenneth Anger. Completed in 1972, the film was only widely distributed in 1980.
In his late thirties, Anger began to plan Lucifer Rising, initially intending for it to document the growing countercultural movement as it existed in California. As Anger had it, he wanted to film "today's new tribe of teenagers, turned-on children – teeny-boppers and adolescent hippies."
Anger biographer Bill Landis described Lucifer Rising as one of the filmmaker's "most popular and enjoyable films". He would further refer to it as "a religious movie... of the top order", comparing it favourably to the "kitsch" films of that genre such as The Ten Commandments and Mohammad, Messenger of God. He added that the inclusion of the Adept as a character in the film "unlocks the psychodramatic autobiographical element of Anger's moviemaking."
