SELECT PRAISE
“Curatorial enfant terrible Daniel McKernan brings the magickal, sexually transgressive short films he screened at last year’s MIX NYC festival to the West Coast. Many of the films capture the spirit of arch-gay cinematic spell-casters Kenneth Anger and Derek Jarman, especially those made by the program’s more (in)famous participants, such as Throbbing Gristle alumni Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson (appearing together as the Threshold HouseBoys Choir). The younger contributors, such as Black Sun Productions, are clearly influenced by P-Orridge and Christopherson’s bold career choices; their homages make the films crackle with cross-generational currents of erotic, creative energy.”
- Joel Shepard, curator, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA


“Daniel is by way of making his path through life – from visiting Coil in England at a VERY tender age … to curating various well thought of “underground” events and film festivals, to end up, almost certainly, in who-knows-what high-powered position, whether that’s whispering “Rosebud” in the snow or hair-under-a- wrap bickering “Grey Gardens” style with former beauties, movers and shakers, I have no idea. But to all events he has very good taste and has that knack some have IN SPADES to be in the Right Place at exactly the Right Time.”
- Peter Christopherson (1955-2010), industrial music pioneer & co-founder Coil & Throbbing Gristle
