IMDB - Return to the Pleasure Dome

High octane erotic dancing to a gritty rockabilly tune as she dances against a blinding light to a Tiki theme backdrop.
An unnatural menacing force glares upon the vixen. Aware, she still dances.

Madness ensues as the surreal and nightmarish event unfolds setting the stage for the question of whats real and whats not. Who does she dance for? Is it a dream or hallucination?

-Inspired by Kenneth Anger's 1954 cult classic "The Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome", photographer Robert Lang presents the short film "Return to the Pleasure Dome" as a homage to the classic and envisions his own version of events to the paraquel.

As it most of Anger's films, he leaves the interpretation to the viewer for arts sake. Toiling with the idea of occultism as that was a major theme from the original which featured ceremonial masks and drugged-up lusty creatures as subliminal symbols appear and vanish. Like the laughing monster from the film who emerges and disappears out of view, takes center stage here in the short.
