With the stamp of Privates Archiv fur Filmkunde on the verso, along with a holograph ink annotation in German noting Anger's name.

Anger, one of the most significant filmmakers to come out of the American avant-garde in the mid-1960s, was born in Southern California and began making films when he was only ten years old. His work often featured occult and homosexual themes, with the writings of English gnostic poet Aleister Crowley being a notable influence. His 1953 film "Eaux d'Artifice" was selected for the National Film Registry in 1993.

9 x 6.5 inches. Very Good plus, with light creasing to the left edge, lightly foxed on the verso.
