Oddball Films presents Altered States: American Surrealist, Ritual and Trance Cinema. Featuring seminal works from Kenneth Anger, Maya Deren, Margaret Mead and John Whitney this program explores ritual and trance through a range of cinematic styles and showcases the brilliance and innovation of American ethnographic and experimental filmmakers.

Plus! 2 films by San Franciscan masters: Fantasy (1976), an hallucinatory handmade animated film from animation legend Vince Collins, and an excerpt from Peter Adair’s verite documentary Holy Ghost People (1967) about Pentecostal snake handlers in rural West Virgina. And More!
