The organization behind L.A.’s longest-running experimental film series, Los Angeles Filmforum, presents “Avatar and Aether: Visionary Women and the Cinematic Occult,” a program of short films by and about visionary female occultists, from trippy dance visions to hallucinatory collage animations and a lot of unusual stuff between. Auteurs include avant-garde filmmaker Chick Strand as well as Betzy Bromberg and Amy Halpern. The screening coincides with the exhibition “Cameron: Songs for the Witch Woman,” and appropriately includes filmmaker Curtis Harrington’s 10-minute tribute to the artist, The Wormwood Star (1955), featuring Cameron’s dynamic presence and her own singular, occult-infused artwork.
