Anne Pigalle' s  ECSTASE

Ecstase is the odyssey of a woman through the underground of Paris,
London and Los Angeles.

Ecstase is a DIY multi media in progress extravaganza, a riot of self discovery through love and the acquisition of a spiritual ecstasy.

Tonight 's showing will presents clips, videos and home movies from Madame Sex, Ecstase and The Soho Connection, depicting the adventures of our protagonist . Not unlike Mary Magdalene.

Anne met the late director Donald Cammell  (Performance, Demon Seed, White of the Eye, Wild Side ) in LA in the mid 90's who liked her work and offered to direct the originally titled Spirit of Ecstasy project . 
After more adventures and some success in the art world as a painter and photographer, Anne finally produces the self penned album/soundtrack for Ecstase.  Donald called her a genius.

Anne is a multi media artist, known also as the first and probably the only French female solo singer to have been signed directly to a British label. A bit like Joan of Arc.
Musicians such as Glen Matlock guest on the album. 
The filmettes feature many suspects including Ray Gange, Jenny Runacre, OBE Leslie Hardcastle, Tony fromThe Museum of Soho, and many more...
 
This Panglossian tale is a remedy for a confused, self-obsessed, generic, insipid, transitory period of the world. From a woman's perspective.

The evening includes the premiere screening of “The Soho Connection” and a live performance from Anne herself.
