Just in from Saint at Large, a genre-defying film about the infamous Black Party in NYC. The "film experiance" is called "Schwarzwald: The Movie To Dance To" starring Buck Angel with a cast of thousands! The music element is taken from the Black Party where Peter Rauhofer and Offer Nissim dj'ed. This very differnet film has to be seen in a club and in-person to get the full effect.
The Schwarzwald experience has hit the Film Fest Circuit- starting with NEWfest in NYC June 9th and just recently July 21st in Los Angeles at OUTfest.
As Saint At Large describes this event:
"This year, we offer something a bit different: our first screening ever to be held at a dance club! We're thrilled to bring Gay Film Fest audiences a film unlike any other at this year's festivals: Schwarzwald: Rites XXVII - The Movie You Can Dance To! Schwarzwald lets you experience New York City's underground Black Party first hand - but it goes beyond simply documenting the legendary event. Producer Stephen Pevner and writer/director Richard Kimmel have instead created a truly original art film merging the revelry of the annual event with ancient druidic rituals, resulting in a provocative, eye-opening allegorical fairy tale. Starring transsexual porn star Buck Angel, Flloyd, Daniel Cartier, Hunter James, Damon DeMarco, Blue Kennedy, and a host of others, plus special appearances by the Houses of Xtravaganza and Aviance, and, of course, a cast of thousands of Black Party attendees, Schwarzwald follows Buck Angel on a transformative journey through the forest culminating in the orgiastic spectacle of the Black Party. True to its subject, Schwarzwald really is a movie you can dance to - intended to be projected on club walls while people are dancing. Join us for this special Gay Film Fest event, and experience the immersive multimedia experience of Schwarzwald in Dancesurround!"
