"The Magus" screens at MIX New York


"The Magus" has been selected to screen at MIX NYC, the 24th New York Queer Experimental Film Festival, which runs November 15 - 02, 2011. It will screen as part of the "Fantastic Magik" program on Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 9:00pm at The MIX Factory.

The ecstatic, the fantastic, the dark and the strange converge in Fantastic Magick for a new edition of homoerotic love spells, witches and devilish art. Here you will find tricksters conjuring spirits of the past as well as blazing trails for all that is to come through sex, inversion, the occult, and other forms of ritual behavior. In SorciƩres, Mes Soeurs, we find women living in defiance of social expectations, and in WHOEVER WHATEVER, we find a more obscure yet equally magical take on a defiant woman. In Aquarius, a love spell is cast, where in The Magus and Jerk the Circle, we observe rituals with more obscure ends. From the directly subversive to the obscurely strange, queer magic and ritual infuse the screen with delight. This program delves into the roots of its own creation only to tear asunder your assumptions from the start. - MIX NYC Programming Committee
