Shade Rupe
Filmmaker, writer, festival programmer, and lover of outsider life is the author of the acclaimed interview collection DARK STARS RISING: CONVERSATION FROM THE OUTER REALMS (Headpress Books, 2011), featuring Divine, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Udo Kier, Dennis Cooper, Gaspar Noe, and other pioneers of individuated lifestyles, which Robert Ebert declared as “the most fearsome creatures in the transgressive cinema.” His 2011 short film T IS FOR TRICK elicited queer author Clive Barker’s praise: “That was an elegantly shot, sharply edited and strongly conceived and directed four minutes of filmmaking. Colour me impressed.” Shade produced and directed the live recording of Teller (Penn & Teller) and Todd Robbins’ off-Broadway spookshow PLAY DEAD, which premiered at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival in 2012, with further plays at the AFI Center in Washington DC and the American Cinemathque in Los Angeles, which Marilyn Manson praised by commenting “PLAY DEAD reminds me of my early years as a spiritual terrorist.” 2013 Shade was a guest at the Off Plus Camera film festival in Kraków, Poland, bringing several films based around Dark Stars Rising, including a 35mm print of Andy Warhol’s Dracula, which was introduced with live running commentary by festival judge Udo Kier.
