“The Magician” is a short ‘documentary’ by director, Matthew Kaundart. The film follows retired-adult-film-star and author, Christopher Zeischegg, as he attempts the synthesis of art and black magick. An exploration of love, revenge, art-as-addiction, and the toxic pursuit of fame. The Magician is an explicit and lyrical journey, ambitious beyond its scope. The genre-defying film was produced by Luka Fisher, and features photos by Gina Canavan, and (re)enactments from queer artists, Sheree Rose, Kevin Killian, Nikki Darling, Peter Kalisch, Kayla Tange, and more.
