Ciné Salon’s Spring 2018 will address a selection of outstanding visionary movies important to the history of the medium that for a variety of reasons are little seen. It is hoped our efforts will renew appreciation in these moving image gems.

Acid Visions
Psychedelic cinesthesia explodes in “far out” films and music recorded at the 1967 Human Be-In in San Francisco and as “experienced” in other groovy ‘60s LSD trip films, up to and including the amazing psychotic, more recent mash-ups, Henri-Georges Clouzot’s L’Inferno and Peter Tscherkassky’s The Exquisite Corpus.
